We were really excited to find out that we had been chosen by the Historical Association to take some children to Agincourt in France, to commemorate 600 years since the famous battle.
The Battle of Agincourt is of particular relevance and importance to our community. Before leaving for Agincourt, soldiers were camped in fields surrounding our school, awaiting orders to board the hundreds of ships gathered at Southampton’s port. It was here that saw Henry V and his troops preparing for battle, leaving Southampton for Harfleur and onwards to victory at the battle of Agincourt. At Agincourt, Henry Vs greatly depleted and outnumbered army achieved the impossible, shocking the medieval world.
Our little historians had a great learning experience in France and have gained lots of information to share with the school.
