Terrific Tournament

On Monday 24th February, Year 5 were summoned to the hall for a special treat to launch their Conflict topic. When they arrived they were greeted with two magnificent knights ready to do battle. The Wise Winton Wizard introduced both knights and battle commenced! Each knight chose some champions from their classes to compete in the spelling bee and times tables rounds. They then battled each other with jousting lances and swords (made out of carbaord tubes!). Sir King and Sir Hassan battled to the end although Sir Hassan was frequently accused of unchivalrous behaviour. Most of the classes decided that Sir King should be crowned champion due to his wise, truthful and sportsmanlike behaviour. We all had a wonderful time and are looking forward to learning more about the history of conflict through the ages and how we can resolve conflict in our own lives.
