CastleOn Thursday and Friday, April 24 and 25, Grade Six students will travel to the Cincinnati Waldorf School for the Eighth Annual Medieval Games (or as veteran parents call them, the Mud-Evil Games). It is always delightful to watch our children engage in the curriculum in meaningful, purposeful ways, and it’s especially rewarding for students to share the experience with students from Waldorf schools in Ohio, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Kentucky. The competition includes sport such as jousting, archery, moat jumping, and tug-of-war.

This is a hands on experience of sixth grade curriculum, which studies Medieval history in depth. Class Six children study the rise and fall of Rome and the affect Greek and Roman culture had on European civilization up through the Middle Ages.

As shared by our friends at the Cincinnati Waldorf School:

The students are hosted overnight by CWS families and then arrive the next morning at our Meshewa campus for a day filled with jousting, steeplechase, archery, dungeon escape, log cross, moat jumping, tug-of-war, and of course, lots of mud! The event combines history, ethical conduct, Bardic Circle presentations of music and verse, and physical challenges in a Medieval tournament. The chivalry, steadfastness and valor that each student displays at the Medieval Games is truly amazing. The fun, friendship and memories of this experience will last a lifetime.
