Sampling life in a castle.

A newcastle school was turned into a medieval castle for a day of sword-making, feasting and games.

The successful knighting ceremony was the culmination of a day of activities based around reliving life in a medieval castle held at Ascham House School for boys in Gosforth.

The school, which caters for boys from three to 13, held the event for boys in Year 2 and activities included sword-making, medieval cooking and playing football with a `pig's bladder'.

The highlight of the day was when William Taylor-Roe dubbed Robbert Kellaway a knight, watched by the other boys who dressed in medieval armour and costumes.
