How cool are castles?

What a fantastic way to start our new  Y1 topic! We had a fun filled day with the prettiest princesses, handsome princes and super cool knights! Everyone looked absolutely fantastic and what a huge effort you had all made!

We began our day by working collaboratively in groups to create a 3D lego castle. There were certainly some  very extravagant, creative and interesting designs! It was so nice to see everyone working so well together to create the coolest castle! We followed this by drawing what we think a real castle looks like.

After having a banquet at lunch time and the knights practicing their sword fighting, we created our own tiaras and crowns which all looked fantastic! We then discussed what the role of a knight is. We then created our own knight collages which we can’t wait to show you!

After such an exciting day we can’t wait to see where our learning will take us next into the world of castles!
