Event - Year 1 Explore Warwick Castle

26 February 2015

The children explored the historic grounds of the castle and discussed the structure and architecture of homes of Kings and Queens.

They looked at different materials the parts of the castle were built from and they were immersed in a magical world of legends and myths. Year 1 also took part in a workshop to make and paint their shield. These were then used to act out the scenarios from medieval times.

We followed our trip with some lovely work in our Topic lessons and discussed the life from the past.
