Congartulations, 6th Grade
on a great Medieval Faire!

The royal court and guests from the clergy enjoying the day

The first ever Medieval Faire project for the Ellis 6th grade was a complete success. The day included:

a field trip to Calvary Cathedral, where students learned about both gothic architecture and the importance of the Church in Medieval Europe,

a catapult-building session, follwed by a contest of distance and accuracy,

a feast celebrating the Lord's safe return from the Crusades, including food and entertainment ,

a lawn chess match in which students played the part of living chess pieces while donning their own custom-made headpieces,

a Medieval dance enjoyed by all of the participants,

and a hotly-contested jousting tournament!

It was a full day enjoyed by all, including the parents!!
