Key Stage 1 - Middle Ages: A Knight's Tale

A Knight’s Tale

Meet a knight in shining armour or a princess and marvel at stories of bravery and adventure. Learn how the world looks viewed from behind a medieval-style helmet and weigh up a heavy gauntlet.

Our hands-on session allows pupils to create puppets for our interactive storytelling session, told by our resident knight or princess and includes a chance to handle replica armour.

A flash in the pan

This expression originates with the misfire of a flintlock or similar gun. The powder in the pan was supposed to ignite the main charge in the barrel. Sometimes only the powder in the pan flashed without firing the main charge.
