Think, Pair, Share – Pupils read and then shade in details about Medieval fun that looks dangerous and other activities that don’t.
Emerging/Secure/Mastery choice activities – Pupils complete 2 activities (one literacy and one visual/creative) to help consolidate and show their understanding of medieval entertainment.
