What an amazing Castles Day we have shared! Mistress Fiona from 'History off the Page' introduced us to a fun packed day of castle themed activites. The morning began with workshops where the children made mediaeval artefacts. This was followed by an afternoon banquette with servitors. The children seperated into groups to provide entertainment for the banquette, they were dancers, jesters, knights and knightesses. Please scroll down to view photographs taken throughout the day.
