On Wednesday 17 October, Mr Dennis Aistrope spoke to the Year 8 History classes about the Samurai, Shogun and different classes of Ninja’s in Ancient Japanese society. Dennis Aistrope has a deep knowledge and interest in all things Japanese and the boys were spell bound with all that he had to share. Dennis bought in his Katana swords (replicas) and knives which had secret compartments and different weapons which would have been dipped in poison.
Dennis also spoke to the students about honour and and how they helped their opposition bury their dead after the battles. The boys found this most fascinating.
