Forts and Thoughts – start the term with a BANG!

This week we welcomed Tony Hutton from the English Civil War Society to help launch our new topic for the Autumn Term … Thoughts & Forts. Tony brought with him an array of objects and artifacts for the children to examine and even try on! We learned all about the role Newark played in the wars, what it was like to be besieged and the uniform and weaponry worn and used by soldiers – including how to load and fire a musket. The term, quite literally, started with a BANG!
