Today we have had some very exciting visitors from the Escafeld Medieval Society. They came to help us with our learning about the story of Robin Hood. We had a visit from The Sheriff of Nottingham and Little John among others.
The children got to experience and hold some real weapons including different sized swords, axes, a mace, chain mail and shields. They were amazed to find out how heavy they are. The Sheriff of Nottingham told us about how he would have used them including using his sword to eat his food!
We then had a go at archery in the hall using real bow and arrows! The children tried so hard to hit the target and enjoyed cheering each other on,
Finally we were able to watch a battle between the characters. We had such an exciting day and learnt so much about life long ago! It was very different from our life today.
