We catch up with Kev the trainee knight as he continues his training at Kingshill Castle. This time he meets Princess Petronella and Darren the Dragon where Kev has to subtract within 10 and crossing 10. Kev then has to work out how many candles will be left in the box by counting and crossing 10 and then finally, Kev is allowed to take part in some knightly activities by taking part in a fencing match with Sir Bruno, but for every touch of Kev’s armour, he loses a point, how many points will he lose?
