A WYMONDHAM school took a trip back into the Middle Ages as part of a family education programme.

Dozens of parents and children from the Wymondham area tried their hands at making their own coat of arms, knight's helmets, and swords and had a go at hobby horse jousting as part of the Medieval Madness event.

Around 50 families took part in the festivities at Browick Road Infant School, Wymondham, on Saturday, which was organised by Wymondham schools cluster in partnership with Norfolk Family Learning and Norfolk Adult Education. There was also music and dancing from a hurdy gurdy man and Morris dancers.

Jane Bartram, Wymondham cluster extended schools co-ordinator, said the event had been “hugely successful” at the beginning of Adult Learners' Week.
