Catapults and jousting on Medieval Day
On Wednesday 1 March 2017, the children and staff in Year 1 at St George's Junior School all came to school dressed as princes, princesses or knights ready to celebrate Medieval Day.
The pupils were lucky enough to be visited by Sir Teachalot, who spent the day with the children, showing them Medieval armour and weapons, teaching them how to joust using a wooden horse and lance, as well as helping them to build a castle with bricks. As they constructed the castle, Sir Teachalot explained why each feature was chosen and positioned in that particular way.
The day ended with the children using a model of a trebuchet catapult to knock the castle down!
The children learned plenty of new facts about castles and knights, as did the teachers! A great day was had by all.
