Two reception classes of St Mark's Primary School, in Worle, learned more about the medieval times by creating castle forts and dining out on a banquet.

Pupils read stories and discovered how jesters entertained monarchs and noblemen.

A school spokesman said: "We wanted to be more interactive with the children's learning by not only letting them dress up, but by using other skills including drawing and painting.

"They have been learning about the food eaten at the time and how we used to live back in the Middle Ages.

"We try to have one day per term where the kids can get dressed up and really immerse themselves in the subject.

"It was a special day and lovely for the staff to see the enjoyment on their faces, too."
