Curlew and Avocet classes have been learning all about the famous legend of the magical sword which was plunged into a stone by the wizard Merlin. The blade was known as Excalibur and could only be reclaimed by the true heir of Uther Pendragon. The children went on a quest and found a sword embedded in an almighty rock. The ‘knights and ladies’ of Year 2 tried their luck in pulling the sword from the stone. Desperately hoping to be the next monarch, they heaved and they heaved. Eventually a certain young boy, coincidentally named ‘Arthur’ was able to succeed in the task and was crowned.
