Event - Year 1 at Warwick Castle

23 February 2016

As part of our Topic WOW Start, Year 1 travelled to Warwick Castle to meet the famous people from British History – The Kings and Queens.

We explored the grounds of the castle and discussed its features. We talked about different materials the castle was made from and we discussed the life of the people who lived there.

We were immersed in a magical world of legends and we made shields to protect ourselves from the dragons.
