Let us take you and your students back to the times when knights & castles were at their most useful. King Arthur will enter to show students the life that people led. They will learn about the jobs that needed to be done within the castle. We will trace the constructions of the first motte and bailey. Then we move onto the stronger stone castles. Finally we take a look at concentric castles. Comparing these three we will evaluate which type was the strongest and why.
Knights had to swear on a special code known as the ‘code of chivalry’. This was a set of rules that they must abide by. We will knight a selection of students and then they will joust in honour of King Arthur. We will appoint a court jester whose job it is to ensure everyone is always smiling.
The students will learn about the different rooms that were in a castle and their each, individual importance.
AREAS WE COVER
LIFE IN THE CASTLE
HOW MANY CHILDREN?
Up to 90 children (3 classes) can take part in a full days workshop. For large groups we will need to split the day up slightly.
A big hall is ideal for large groups. However quite often we can fit into one or more classrooms dependent on the group size.
DBS CHECKED FACILITATORS
PUBLIC LIABILITY INSURANCE
KNIGHTS & CASTLES GALLERY
We will be adding pictures of this workshop soon!
