This term, Year 1 have been studying homes and castles. They have listened to lots of traditional fairy tales and have retold them in their own words. The children are making great progress with their independent writing! To experience what it would have been like living in a castle keep hundreds of years ago, we made a class visit to Newcastle keep on a freezing winter’s day. It was great fun exploring the old rooms and then participating in a fairy tale workshop in the Black Gate. In Design and Technology lessons this term, the children designed and made their own simple castle keeps.Everyone now knows lots about castle life.
