7:00am Friday 7th March 2014 in News
PUPILS got to grips with 17th-century weapons during a special lesson on the English Civil War.
The Year Eight class at Wheatley Park School enjoyed a visit from English historical association and charity Sealed Knot, on Wednesday.
They heard a talk on the Civil War and the Battle of Marston Moor in York, before taking a closer look at the weapons of the time.
Sealed Knot member Simon Davies, 65, said: “They loved it.
“They thought it was a great day, it all went down very well.
“We look forward to our next visit.”
John and Patricia Oakley from the Sealed Knot led Wednesday’s lesson alongside Mr Davies.
