Medieval activity days for Key Stages 2, 3 and above

Date Posted: 11/05/2015

Canterbury Tales has teamed up with local bushcraft experts Black Wolf Survival & Bushcraft to offer a new schools package based on life in Medieval England.

Key Stage 2 and 3 students will be able to get a taste for what life was actually like in Medieval England, during a new Pilgrim’s Way activity day at the Canterbury Tales attraction in Kent.

The educational experience has been developed in conjunction with local bushcraft experts Black Wolf Survival & Bushcraft.

The full day’s itinerary will include a tour of The Canterbury Tales, a Medieval treasure trail around the cathedral city, archery and a bushcraft session.

Pupils will learn about the Medieval people who took pilgrimages to Canterbury for religious reasons and discover the traditional skills they would have used to get by, including fire-making and the cookery of Bannock Bread – a flat bread made from grain.

Up to 60 children can take part in the day and one supervisor is needed for every group of 15.
