VALLEY Road Primary School in Henley was transformed into a medieval carnival for its summer fair.

VALLEY Road Primary School in Henley was transformed into a medieval carnival for its summer fair.

Pupils at the school in Valley Road dressed up as knights and princesses for the day.

There were games including archery and “space jousting”, where youngsters tried to knock their opponent off a space hopper using a foam lance, while children could also throw sponges at volunteers in the stocks.

There was a stall offering medieval-themed temporary tattoos. Children also took part in a baking competition judged by Chris Baker, of Lawlor’s the Bakers in Greys Road, Henley.

Millets Falconry, near Abingdon, brought birds of prey and other animals along for the day.



The fair raised more than £2,000 towards a new multi-purpose classroom.

Siobhan Pratt, who chairs the school’s parent-teacher association, said: “We had about 100 families on the day and the fair went marvellously.”
