Andreas School

The learning community that develops the thinking skills of all its members.

As part of our topic, Silverdale Class were very lucky to welcome 'Armourboy' aka Stuart Quayle to school this morning to talk us through his amazing collection of medieval armour and weaponry.

The children all got to try on some of the replica pieces and learnt so much!

Here are some photos from his visit.
