PUPILS thought a medieval knight was joust great during a visit to a Hartlepool school.

Paul Martin from a living history group brought medieval England to life for children at Hartlepool’s Golden Flatts Primary School.

He showed pupils his metal armour, put on a display of horseback jousting and Key Stage two youngsters got the chance to fire his bow and arrow.

Teacher Emma Bestford, who organised the visit, said: “It was a good way of bringing history alive to the children and make it more meaningful.

“They loved it and were so enthusiastic about it.

“As a result we have got really high quality pieces of work.”

The visit was arranged as part of Year 2 pupils’ project on knights and castles.

But the whole school, in Station Lane, got involved following Paul’s visit and produced a raft of creative writing and art work which made a big display in school.
