L4 Recreate the Battle of Hastings!

Monday 1st October 2018

This week, L4A were set the task of recreating the Battle of Hastings as part of their project to investigate why William of Normandy was victorious.

The famous battle took place between the army of King Harold II and the Norman forces of William the Conqueror in 1066, fighting for the English throne.

Pupils had to use their knowledge of the different weaponry used by the Normans and the Saxons to create the props for their groups. Each group was then given two scenes from the battle to act out as a tableaux. The pupils used the hill outside Mrs Harrington’s office to recreate ‘Senlac Hill’ and made some fantastic weapons! Daisy S (L4) went above and beyond by bringing in a hobby horse and making a Papal Banner for the Normans in her group!

Miss Swindells was so impressed by their props and performances that the whole class received a merit for outstanding work. Well done, L4A!

Take a look at some photos from their exciting re-enactment below!
