So - we are celebrating Alfred the Great day on Monday.  

 

We will eat barley cakes, but apart from that I don't have many ideas.  The kids involved will be from 6 to 10.

 

Help!

You can google pictures of Winchester - both the cathedral and the statue are there. The cathedral might have a site of its own with more pics.

That’s what I was going to suggest.

You could also play hide and seek. Didn’t he spend a lot of time hiding?? (I’m trying to remember that story)
