This half term we have been focussing on our topic CASTLES. In Design Technology, we created our own Venetian masks. We were so delighted with them, that we showed them to RAR and RAS – they all really liked them too! We are all ready for a masquerade ball now.



Year 1 visited Tamworth castle on the 6th February and experienced stepping back in time. We were able to find out about how the Lord and lady lived and met characters from the past who told us stories and showed us different objects that were used in the past. The children were able to take a tour around the castle, use a range of activities in a museum, help dress a knight and take part in a marching drill.
Everyone enjoyed the trip to Tamworth castle and fun was had as always!
This has really started our topic for next term on castles wonderfully.
