Year 4 Castles day

10th Sep 2018

To introduce our children to their topic this term, we dedicated our first Monday to exploring some of castle life. We looked at different artefacts, discussed the diets of the rich and the peasants (including why peasants often outlived their lords and ladies) and built small scale motte and bailey castles. The children also enjoyed designing their own coat of arms and practised sending messages using Anglo-Saxon runes.
