Schoolchildren come to Camelot
1:30pm Monday 18th March 2013 in News
Beaminster youngsters went back in time – and turned their school into a West Dorset version of Camelot.
The children at St Mary’s Primary school held a Castles, Knights and Dragons morning to bring together their Key Stage 1 work this term.
To celebrate, they held an activity morning and parents were invited to go to the school to watch.
The activities included taking part in a medieval dance workshop and making medieval hats.
The pupils also worked out how to cross a moat, investigated weights using a catapult and looked up facts about castles on the computer.
The children worked together in mixed age groups to support each other, develop relationships – and have fun.
