Medieval Realms

The Pilgrimage

It is 1381. King Richard II is on the throne. It is 30 years since the Black Death: time to go on a pilgrimage to thank God for sparing your life. Hands on activities to prepare children for their voyage. You could meet:

  • The Archer - Warfare; practice your skills for protection on the way.
  • The Baker/Cook - lives of the peasantry: make medieval bread and prepare food for the pilgrimage.
  • Monk/Nun - find out about Medieval Religion, make Effigies and Tokens.
  • The Herbalist - herbs for healing and superstitions: prepare the traveller's first aid kit.

After lunch we visit the Medieval Church within the grounds and look at the Architecture and Contents.

This project covers various aspects of the National Curriculum KS3
