Priory Infant School

Castles Day

Year 1 children had a brilliant time exploring castle life through special activities. Our visitors taught us about the clothes that medieval people would have worn, we saw how linen would be spun into threads and woven and looked at wool, leather and a silk cocoon. We had the opportunity to try on a suit of armour and lifted a very heavy, blunt sword. In the kitchen we stoked the fires and prepared a feast for the Lord and Lady.
