Bringing Medieval times to life at Davenies
We were once again treated to a visit from the History Man during the week, this time of the was the turn of Year 1 to learn about all things Medieval. Using a his unique sense of humour that was certainly appreciated by the Year 1 boys, he gave the boys a great understanding of Medieval castle life, battles, how our language evolved, the weaponry and armour used by the people of the time, clothing worn and even what Medieval society would have eaten. The boys were invited to touch and explore the props and finished the day on the field with a huge explosion from a cannon!
The boys came away with a great understanding of what it would have been like to live during the era and the History Man did a wonderful job of bringing the boys’ Spring Term topic to life.
