Year 7’s go to Dudley Castle!
Finding out about Medieval times
Our Year 7’s visited Dudley Castle and Zoo last week as part of our annual PTC Medieval Festival activity. As a joint DT project, Year 7 undertake research about medieval life and prepare all that is needed for a medieval banquet that they attend towards the end of their first year at PTC. They learn about and prepare the typical food that would have been served, research the dress of the period and help make costumes, decorate PTC’s main hall to resemble a medieval banqueting hall and are treated to some traditional entertainment! The project has successfully ran with the Year 7 group for the last four years and this year looks to be even better. Mrs Hunter, Subject Leader for DT said, “This is a great opportunity for our students and staff to research and produce items that they will use to make history come to life here at PTC. It’s a really important part of the PTC calendar and everyone involved has a great time”.
