Norwich Castle

On Wednesday 28th November we visited Norwich castle. 

    

 

We had great fun on our castle trip! We explored the rooms inside the castle and learnt about what it would have been like to live there. We helped the castle staff prepare for a very special jousting competition. 

We made our own penants with Lady Isabella, helped Francis the kitchen maid identify a range of artefacts and helped Jack the rat catcher prepare the great hall for the banquet!

A big thank you to all the staff at Norwich castle!

Autumn term Story cafe!

A big thank you to all the adults that came to our story cafe this afternoon. 

 

  

 

We read the story of Rama and Sita and discussed why and how Diwali is celebrated. We had great fun making our own clay Diya lamps and firework splatter pictures. 

 

 

This term our topic is...

 

Towers, Tunnels and Turrets

This term we will become castle experts.

This is an enquiry based topic.

As a class we have identified what we already know about castles and have created a list of questions that we would like to find the answers to.

In history we will be finding out about famous people from the past. 

In English we will be planning, writing and editing our own castle themed stories. 

 

We will also be visiting a castle during the term to find out what life was like living in a castle. 

 

This terms homework projects...

 

Make a Rapunzel story box!

Using a range of materials and a box work with your family and friends to create a Rapunzel story box.

All story boxes will be displayed and Mr Owens, Mrs Catchpole & Mrs Freeman will select a winner from each class – these pupils will receive a prize!

 

At the end of half term we will be holding a ‘Fabulous finish’ event where parents will be invited into school to see what we have found out and what we have been up to over the term.

 

Please bring your story boxes into school on Friday 14th December. 

Parents are invited into school on Friday 14th December from 2:30pm.
