Knights & Castles Workshop

Let us take you 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.

Why Do People Like To Use Us?

First of all, we take you on a journey. In addition to this we use lots props and artefacts to bring our workshops to life. The whole day will involve the children. There will be calls for discussions, acting, performing and educating – all in the same day. As a result, by the end of the day the children will be able to demonstrate a vast array of new knowledge, vocabulary and skills relating to the topic.
