Year five students recently went on a trip to the visitor centre at Bosworth Battlefields in Leicestershire as part of the history curriculum.
During a session about arms and armour they took part in a drilling activity using billhooks and pikes.
And they undertook a guided walk of the site and saw the location where King Richard III died and, according to legend, the well he drank from before his death.
A Ranby House spokesperson said: “They had the opportunity to learn about heraldry and had to discover which knight was really a spy.”
