History Day takes Perse Pelican children back to medieval times

Year 1 pupils at The Perse Pelican found themselves transported back to the Middle Ages for a fun History Day.

Children made medieval arts and crafts and had a go at using common objects of the era, such as quills, pestles and mortars.

Pupils were also primed for battle as they were shown how soldiers used trebuchets, bows and arrows and shields.

What better way to round off the day than with a medieval banquet – and there were even rat catchers on hand to ensure none of the food was taken!

Teacher Alex Cockley, who organised the event, said: “It was a themed day to link into our Year 1 topic of castles this term. The children participated in a variety of hands-on activities to give them meaningful learning and they all had great fun.”
