Year 5 Re-enactment of the Battle of Newburn Ford

On Wednesday, Year 5 re-enacted the Battle of Newburn Ford: 1640 and a prelude to the    English Civil War. With (paper) canon balls, the Scots (5B) adopted the high ground whereas the English (5G) found defending the lower ground more challenging. They soon learnt that choice of tactics and understanding your local area make all the difference - excellent strategic critique, Year 5!
