Children Become Medieval Royalty
20 Year 1 pupils from Stamford Junior School enjoyed a day as Kings and Queens earlier this month.
During the morning the pupils enjoyed a variety of activities including playing the medieval game of Three Men’s Merels, using the castles and topic related activities, making a medieval pudding and writing jokes for the Jester! The children also watched an example of medieval dancing and worked in small groups to learn the dance themselves.
After lunch, Queen Crow told the pupils a medieval story and then showed them some interesting pictures depicting life in a castle and the roles of the people who lived there. The children enjoyed a “Feast” tasting a selection of breads, drank “wine, mead or ale” and sampled their medieval pudding.
Finally it was time to read out the jokes that they had written for the Jester and take part in a quiz to see how much they had learned about life in medieval times.
Year 1 Teacher, Gaynor Mullock, said: “The children looked fantastic in their outfits so a huge thank you to the parents for providing such a wonderful array of costumes. It was certainly a day to remember!”
