Suit of Armour:
Today the children were really excited to find one of our lovely parents had brought in some real armour for them to look at. We talked about how chain mail was used to protect the body and how the shoulder guards were made of boiled leather to protect the shoulders of the knight in battle. The metal bracers were a hit too as the children could try these on and see how they would protect a nights wrists in battle. They enjoyed looking at all of the pieces and some of the children drew beautiful pictures of the armour too!
