Re-enactment of the Battle of Bosworth

On Wednesday 2nd October, as part of our Knights and Castles topic, Year 5 had a terrific day re-enacting the famous Battle of Bosworth. The children have worked incredibly hard during this project designing and creating shields and writing rousing battle speeches. Well done to all the Year 5 Knights! What a memorable day!

Our Trip to Cardiff Castle

As part of our Knights and Castles topic, on Wednesday 23rd October 2019, the children of Year 5 stepped back in time when they visited Cardiff Castle. It was an enjoyable and informative visit and certainly helped the children to put what they have been learning in the classroom into context.

Meeting the Norman Architect

The children got the opportunity to meet a "Real Life" 12th Century stone mason. With the responsibility for designing castles on behalf of Edward 1st, James Thomas had a very important role. Hopefully he has both inspired and taught us how to build an effective castle so we can apply the skills we have learnt when we design and build our own castles using Lego.
