Year 1's Trip to Tamworth Castle, Staffordshire
To aid with our summer term history unit and Enquiry Questions of 'What was the function of a castle? and 'What was it like to live and work in a castle?', Year 1 took a trip to learn about this castle. Built by the Normans and later enlarged, the building is today one of the best preserved motte-and-bailey castles in England!
Located just 40 minutes away from our school, Year 1 enjoyed learning and looking around all its features, discovering what type of people lived and worked there, and how the castle was defended, if under attack! We were excited to view some of the famous Staffordshire Hoard whilst we were there.
Year 1 Science & English
In English we wrote persuasive letters to Mrs Corbett, asking her to purchase some seeds for our growing zone, to encourage wildlife. In science we planted these wildflower seeds and have observed the changes over a few weeks.
Year 1 Art
As part of our work on 'The Beauty of Flowers', we made flower sculptures out of clay and painted them.
