Over this half term, Year 1 have worked very hard to create castles inspired by the medieval buildings we have learned about over the last six weeks. We practised creating curved roofs, joining boxes, creating pulleys and working as a team. Have a look at our amazing creations!
A good time was had by all on Wednesday when we were visited by History off the Page. There was plague, pestilence but no pyromania. The children had an opportunity to discover, through practical activities, what life was like in the London of King Charles II. We must thank those […]
