Topic

Benedictine Rules, Monks Illustration


In our Topic lessons in the SummerTerm, we will be delving into the history of the Middle Ages, with particular focus on Monks and monasteries. The children will discover what exactly are monks, where they derived from, what they did and how they lived. 

We will be hoping to visit Norton Priory as this is a good example of a old abbey, which the children will be able to learn a lot about.
