Medieval Day

Students showed great creativity today when they created their own Medieval Village. Prac Student, Holly Nilan, inspired the students to become medieval sheriff’s, tavern owners, butchers, tax collectors and even undertakers. It was an effective way for students to demonstrate their understanding of Medieval History. It was a engaging lesson and the year eights had a fantastic time.
