Medieval times, Poly style

Each spring, sixth grade students finish their year with Medieval Day, an interdisciplinary celebration that reinforces their study of King Arthur in English and the Middle Ages in history. At a workshop prior to the event, students create their own costumes for the event, and throughout the month of May, they work to prepare their contributions to Medieval Day: musical, dance, and dramatic performances; student-built catapults and sundials; and comic books on medieval personalities. Activities on Medieval Day include crafts, storytelling, medieval board games, bocce ball, an armaments demonstration, and jousting (on tricycles). Of course, the highlight of the day is the grand feast put on by the sixth grade parents in the “Great Hall” (aka, the Dining Commons, decorated with banners, candelabras, and goblets).
