Term 4 - Peasants, Princes and Pestilence



"Flee your fields, close your doors and pull up the drawbridge. The dreaded and deadly Great Pestilence is here. Mount your steed and gallop through the dark and deadly world of 14th century Britain, sword and shield at the ready, pledging your allegiance to king and country. Rouse your troops with promises of bloody battle and violent jousts. Read and write historical accounts, poems and tales and discover the grotesque effects of bugs and bacteria on the human body. And if you smell a rat, my friend, get out of there."

We explored medieval illuminated lettering in Art and had a go at recreating intricate designs for the initial letters on a page of writing!

We also explored this in outdoor learning using chalk! Such beautiful work!
