On Friday the 12th June, Year 1 thoroughly enjoyed their Medieval Day and all the children and even the staff dressed up for the day. Thanks to the Friends of Weddington donation, the children were visited by a medieval expert from 'portals of the past'. He taught the children many interesting facts about knights and the medieval times. The children took part in medieval stories, tournaments, medieval games, acting out a castle under attack and medieval courtesies.
He brought lots of medieval artefacts that the children were taught about and were allowed to touch. The children were given the opportunity to wear a variety of medieval armour and wave medieval flags.
It was an inspiring and fun day for the children and staff, one that we shall all never forget.
