Y5 Step back in time to the Middle Ages
Year 5 step back in time to the late Middle Ages, to experience what life was like back in Medieval England. They handled and studied replica artefacts, from the period, to compare life then to life now. They also harvested honey, from our very own hives, prepared the meat and cooked traditional vegetables, to create a Medieval feast. The bees’ wax collected, from the bee hives, was also used to make pomanders, as the children examined the properties and uses of plants and herbs during the Middle Ages.
