A Visit to Agincourt

Commemorating Agincourt

Maheema Chanrai, published 2nd August 2016

In March 2016, twenty students and ten teachers from six lucky schools set off with Historical Association staff to the battlefields of France for a fully-funded visit as part of our Agincourt 600 funded projects. The theme of the visit was ‘Do they learn about Agincourt in France?’ Over the course of the four-day trip, we visited a local French school, re-enacted Henry V’s journey at the Medieval Centre, made our own heraldic shields, practised some archery, stepped onto the battlefield itself – and much more!

In the attached article from the most recent edition of Primary History, you can read recollections of the trip from a teacher’s and a pupil’s perspective. It includes tips on how to make use of the HA’s cross-curricular Remembering Agincourt enquiry, which is available for all teachers to use and download. You can also read the Rayburn Tours blog about the trip here.
