Newark Civil War Centre

Year 8 had lots of fun (all educational of course) at the Civil War Centre…

There was dressing up in authentic civil war costumes, handling 17th century swords and looking at genuine coins from the time too.

Year 8 enjoyed both workshops; learning about the responsibility of Charles I for the war and the opportunity to re-enact the trial of Charles I (beheading and all!)

The glorious weather was also a welcomed addition to the day, with Year 8 basking in the sunshine whilst eating lunch in the courtyard.
