REPORTER: Is it something you'd like to get into?

ROSE: Definitely, definitely. I like sculpting so hopefully go into props, to films, TV, anywhere.

REPORTER: Where are you hoping it will take you?

HAYDEN: Um, well I'm really interested in props and wanna do something like that, puppets especially!

One of the things the students learn about is a process called casting.

REPORTER: So Geoff, you're going to show me how to cast my hand?

GEOFF: That's right, so what we're gonna do is use stuff here called alginate, which is basically stuff that dentists use to take an impression of people's teeth when they give them, when they make braces for them.

REPORTER: This is fun! Okay, straight in? (GEOFF: Yep, straight in there.) And don't touch the bottom!

And after 15 minutes it was ready!

GEOFF: This is the most exciting part and anything can happen from here, sometimes it breaks, sometimes it doesn't.

REPORTER: That is so cool, that's awesome! Rahhh!

Quiz 2 Let's have another quiz

The question is:

Which film won the Oscar this year for best animated feature?

Frankenweenie Wreck-It Ralph Brave Answer: Brave It's from the same people that made Finding Nemo and Up.

OK let's get some sports news now. Here's the Score The Score The V8 supercar series kicked off its season in Adelaide on the weekend with two new car brands.

It's the first time Mercedes and Nissan have been allowed to join the comp alongside traditional rivals Holden and Ford.

But they didn't make an impact in the results.

In the first race Craig Lowndes finished more than 20 seconds ahead of Will Davison and Jaime Whincup.

Then in the second New Zealand driver Shane van Gisbergen won ahead of Whincup and Lowndes.

***** Meanwhile it wasn't just new manufacturers hitting the streets of Adelaide new V8 driver Casey Stoner also took part in his first 4 wheel races since giving up motorbikes last year.

The two time MotoGP world champion crashed in his first race but silenced the critics in his second starting at the back of the pack before weaving his way through the to finish 14th.

******* And in the A-League Melbourne Victory has smashed Newcastle 5 goals - nil, in Melbourne.

Marco Rojas and Mark Milligan both scored doubles.

Also this week, the Mariners lost to the Western Sydney Wanderers, one-nil.

The Wanderers sit at the top of the ladder having won 8 in a row.

Medieval Kids Reporter: Sarah Larsen INTRO: Back in the medieval times knights would fight to protect the King or Queen. But when they weren't fending off large armies they also liked to entertain people by showing off their fighting skills. Sarah went to meet some kids who are keeping this tradition alive by dressing up as knights and engaging in medieval combat.

SARAH LARSEN, REPORTER: In a time after school In a land ruled by the tyranny of homework and video games.

A group of knights take arms and fight...

For honour!

For courtesy!

For courage!

For... well, for fun mostly.

Medieval swordplay might not be quite what you expect at an after school sport, but here at Indes medieval swordplay kids are taught to expect the unexpected.

INSTRUCTOR: Out of my way! Out of my way! Wrong way!

Every week they get together to learn how to wield a sword, a spear, a dagger and a whole bunch of other weapons that you don't see much these days.

KID: This is a halberd it's not a real one as you can see it's made of leather.

REPORTER: What are you guys doing here?

KIDS: I'm unarming here so I can defend myself against a dagger; an assassination attempt.

REPORTER: That sounds handy.

Don't worry, there'll be no real stabbing here. The weapons the kids train with are safe and they wear protective gear. But in medieval times learning these moves could be the difference between life and death.

KID: Well it's like telling you how to be like a medieval knight how to behave like one and how to do the techniques and to learn how to do battles and know more about the history that knights did long ago Medieval is a word used to describe a period of European history that lasted from the 5th to the 15th centuries. In that time Europe was divided into lots of kingdoms.

Knights were noble warriors sworn to protect the king.

KID: So if the Germans were fighting against the French for instance then the French would need to defend against their country and their king which is the most important part and they need to defend their king so the king can go on ruling Knights of old would also display their skills in tournaments; mock battles put on for entertainment. And that sort of thing still goes on today.

Around the world there are many clubs dedicated to learning the art of medieval battle and displaying it at medieval festivals like this.

There are also big national and international competitions. And while these modern knights fight for fun it takes a lot of skill.

KID: Well you have to get your footwork like minor details that people might not think of but they are major like you have to do the right footwork you have to do the right sword work like one bad stroke and you might die.

Many of the techniques they use come from ancient sources which have been preserved and translated.

KIDS: This is a book form Bavaria it's from 1457 it's by it's one of the manuscripts we use for fighting.

Medieval books also tell of the knight's code of chivalry, a set of values like courage, generosity and courtesy that knights were expected to show at all time. And that's a big part of lessons here.

KID: I think you could learn to be honourable to other people you could also show courtesy to the rest of the people especially your family and you can always be courageous.

Maybe that chivalry is why knights remain so popular in stories, films and TV shows and why so many kids and grown-ups dream of wielding a sword like knights of old.

Closer Don't worry Sarah survived!

Well that's it for the show.
