Children in year 5 had a visitor from medieval Congleton.

The children were met by Goodwife Copper who showed them how people dressed, what they ate and how they lived in the Medieval times in Congleton. She told them that as workers in these times they wouldn’t be able to wear any bright colours such as red as that was only worn by lords and the king. Purple was reserved just for the king! Then they were shown the names of jobs the peasants would do to earn a penny a month.
