The Middle Ages and Renaissance came alive at Oakwood for our fourth and fifth-grade students. In this much-loved tradition, students were immersed in a day full of hands-on, enriching, and educational activities. Students, faculty, and parent volunteers donned period-specific attire from elaborate gowns to pirate and knight costumes. Games and activities included archery, Shakespeare recitations, art, and jousting. Students learned all about falconry and were able to see and interact with falcons and owls. A medieval weaponry expert held demonstrations and students were able to handle weaponry and learn the process of becoming a knight. After a grand feast, the celebration concluded with a May Pole Dance by our very own fourth-grade students and recorder performance by our incredible fifth graders. Thank you to all of the volunteers who made this event possible. And a special shout out to the organizations who participated: Davenriche European Artes School, Full Circle Falconry, and Predator's Archery.
Huzzah! Medieval and Renaissance Day Brings the Middle Ages to Life
