Term 4

Made in Oxford – Aunt Sally

The Year 6’s have been studying their topic ‘Made in Oxford’ and to finish it off they took part in the Oxfordshire sport of Aunt Sally. It originated in Port Meadow, Oxford during the Civil War as a game to keep the soldiers entertained and has never left Oxfordshire. Ask someone who doesn’t live in Oxfordshire and you’ll be sure to find out they’ve never heard of it.
A big thank you to Andy Beal Chairman of the Oxford District Aunt Sally League and player for the Gladiator Club in Iffley who came in and spoke to the children about the history of Aunt Sally, the rules of the game and brought his equipment in so they could play the game and also to Marc of the JHNA Maintenance team for welding an Aunt Sally stand together so the children could play.
