This half term, year 5 have been learning all about the terrifying Black Death. During our ‘Hook Day’ we learnt about the job of a plague doctor and the protective clothing that they wore. We used paper mache and poster paint to make our own plague doctor masks, remembering to stuff the beak with scented herbs to ward off the infection! We also learnt about the bizarre remedies used in the middle ages to cure people of the plague and then created our own herbal remedies using some very unusual ingredients! Take a look at the photos below to see what we got up to!
