St. George’s Day celebration.
St George's Day in England remembers St George, England's patron saint. The anniversary of his death, which is on April 23, is seen as England's National Day. According to legend, he was a soldier in the army who killed a dragon and saved a princess.
As part of the celebrations nursery held a medieval feast for the children, along with traditional medieval music.
Once the feast was over it was time for our brave little knights and princesses to explore the castle and hunt for the dragon.
One event that really fired up the children’s imagination was the jousting competition. The children rode their hobby horses towards each other and gave a high five as they passed each other to score points.
Just in case the dragon appeared, our brave knights and princesses practiced their slingshot by throwing the beanbags through the dragon ring.
Once our brave knights and princesses had chased the dragon away they prepared their scrolls to share the good news across the kingdom.
