Year 8 Medieval Day

Last week, 3 Year 8 classes had the opportunity to spend the day dressed in clothing from the medieval times. This was the culmination of the unit of work covered in Term 3. ‘Up Close to History’, a group from Melbourne, came to present a variety of activities which saw the students participate in, and enjoy, games, dance and music, swords and armour, and clothing from this era. The students were active participants in the day and had fun trying to play the games, dance or fight with swords whilst dressed in quite different costumes. The presenters were funny, with jokes flowing quite fast and freely, whilst still being educational. The day also saw the students sit down to a feast of Chicken, bread, cake and fruit, which reflected the food of the day.
