Lords, Ladies, Kings, Queens, knights, peasants, jesters, soldiers and loyal squires were among some of the characters participating in Tintern’s Medieval Day on Friday 1 December. Many students organised their own costumes and cycled through five engaging, interactive events during the day in order to learn about life during medieval times. While the day had a focus on history, it also touched on other curriculum areas including the Creative Arts (Here Be Dragons and Medieval Dance), Science (Alchemy) and Law/Order (Crime and Punishment, Weapons and Armour).
By all appearances, the students thoroughly enjoyed this fun, creative way to learn more about the Medieval era participating enthusiastically in all the activities.
