Article 28: You have the right to a good quality education.

Nightingales had a visitor called Doctor Jo. She was an expert in all things historical. We are learning about the Battle of Hastings this term and she had lots of fascinating facts. We found out that when a boy was 7 years old, if his parents were rich, he could become a page then when he was 14 he would become a squire and learn how to use a sword. Finally after lots of sword practice he could become a knight.

We also found out about motte and bailey castles and the jobs that different people did in the castle. It was really interesting and great fun!
