Castles Day: Year One
Our topic this half term has been ‘Castles’. Children have been exploring this through History lessons where they have used non-fiction information to find out about different types of castle and who lived there. This has also linked to their English lessons where they created their own fantasy stories set in a castle. At the end of the half term, we celebrated children’s learning with a ‘Castles day’. Children came to school dressed in different character costumes such as knights, princesses and dragons. Throughout the day we made catapults and shields. We also had a banquet and learned some medieval dancing. It was thoroughly enjoyed by all.
