Y5 & Y6 Visit Cyherbia – 30th January

Children in Year 5 and 6 had the opportunity to learn about the medicinal powers of a variety of herbs that were used during the Medieval Period and are still used today. They explored the cause of the Bubonic Plague and how it was spread.  Using a special blend of herbs and vinegar each child made their own batch of the Four Thieves Vinegar Plague remedy which was used to ward off the Plague in the 14th century.
