The Joint Learning Session with the emphasis on the Medieval times has finished. I (DeAnna) organized sports for this session. Three mornings a week the boys and I arrived at school at 7:15 so we could get set-up by 7:30 to begin. The students played warm-up games that were part of the theme and mastered one of three tournament sports events (spear toss, joust or horseman’s gallop a.k.a. hurdles). The last day there was a closing ceremony with many fun presentations and it all ended with the tournament.
The students also learned stilt walking (we used big cans), juggling, jestering and miming.
