The Year 1 classes enjoyed a fantastic morning of Battle of Hastings themed fun at White Castle on Tuesday. It was an idyllic morning, with the castle bathed in sunshine and Minstrel Tom on hand to fill the air with the sounds of atmospheric Medieval music. The children were treated to a workshop about castle life and took part in a quiz – where the questions were hidden around the castle. After a demonstration of the huge range attainable by an arrow from a longbow, the children re-enacted the famous battle, with Mrs Lewis’ Normans being victorious over Miss Lane’s brave Saxons.
