It’s the day of the joust and Kev, our trainee knight, is busy helping to ensure everything runs smoothly. He has to check the number of visitors in the castle grounds and with Princess Petra’s help, work out related calculations. He must also work out how many people are seated in the stands and then, there is a surprise for Kev during the joust when the scores are compared!
