Year one pupils at Blyth’s Bede Academy were transported back to days of yore to tuck into a medieval-style banquet.

Dressed as kings, queens, jesters, knights, maids, cooks, blacksmiths, lords and ladies, 90 pupils, aged five and six, also took part in a Norman-themed fancy-dress parade and listened to medieval tales and music.

Teacher Zoe Anderson said: “We decided to have a Norman history day to celebrate all of the children’s hard work learning about castles, the Battle of Hastings and the Bayeux Tapestry.

“All of the students and the staff had a wonderful day. The children worked so hard with so much enthusiasm and were really engaged in the whole project.”

Pupil Eleanor Kerr, five, of Blyth, added: “I really liked getting dressed up and listening to all of the stories about castles.”
