On Monday 11 January the children from Year 1 and Reception went back in time to spend the day in a medieval castle with ‘Lord Phillip’ from History Off The Page. The children learnt to make soap, bake pea pies, create scary gargoyles and decorate beautiful illuminated letters. Lord Phillip taught the children how to hold a bow and arrow and joust at the quintain so they could defend the castle from the wicked ‘Sir Geoffrey’. In the afternoon the children held a banquet, entertained by groups of jugglers, tight-rope walkers, dancers and singers. The children threw themselves enthusiastically into the day, and everyone had a wonderful time.
