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.
