Knights and Castles

three toy knights knitted from wool

What is a knight without his castle? Sir George the knight is in trouble. 

Something has knocked down his beautiful castle, his squire is missing and his armour has been scattered.

See our Knights and Castles Learning Resources for free videos, images and audio files to use with your pupils to enhance their learning.


Workshop Information

Can your pupils come to Sir George’s rescue and save the day? Your pupils will use puppets and props to retell the story of George and the Dragon in an interactive storytelling session and become medieval squires and help put together George’s armour. Finally, pupils will work together to rebuild George’s castle.

If your pupils manage to fulfil all of George’s wishes then he may just perform a little knight jive in full armour to celebrate.
