Usually on a Wednesday I write about something we’ve studied previously. My goal is to have fully caught up and have a record of all our history by the end of this year (probably before). This post was due to be on Mycenae, but I was going through some old photos and found a heap portraying our time at a medieval reenactment and I thought, as we were finishing off castles this week, it would slot in quite nicely!
We love going to re-enactments and I think secretly the children would quite like to get involved in one themselves (lots of dressing up and pretend play – what could be more enjoyable?). I love also that they tend to be very hands on and not only give lots of demonstrations, but also allow the children a chance to try things for themselves. This was a reenactment we attended in Northern Ireland, so was probably about 4 years ago.
Oh the memories!! I LOVE looking back!
