As part of their 'Vile Victorian' topic learning, Year 5&6 paid a visit to the Oakham Museum and was able to experience what life was actually like during this particular era. An electronic device was nowhere to be seen! :O

Today is the 548th anniversary of the Battle of Empingham fought on 12th March 1470 in Rutland. Edward IV defeated the Earl of Warwick. Warwick's men fled the battle throwing away their livery jackets so it was dubbed 'Losecote Field'
