Robin Hood in our school?

Today we had a lesson on how to use a long bow. Unfortunately Robin Hood was not available so Mr Steve Joel from the Sherwood Foresters Archery Club came to our school instead to talk about bows and arrows and how the long bows evolved into our modern Olympic version. He demonstrated how to fire arrows and we learnt many safety facts and rules about using these.
