In September Ms. Hanbidge’s class were busy learning all about the Normans in Ireland. We learned about their lives, weapons and the huge changes they brought to Ireland. As part of this topic we built some fabulous motte and baileys and stone castles. We also tried our hand at feasting like the Normans by making Norman gingerbread. It wasn’t quite as good as the gingerbread today. The recipe is here if anyone is feeling brave!
