Hello everybody! We are Class 1M and there are 26 of us in our class.
Our class teacher is called Miss McDonald and our teaching assistant is
Mrs Fletcher – they both look after us very well.
We have lots of fun in class and enjoy all aspects of the curriculum.
We explored every corner of the medieval castle, which withstood a three-year siege during the Civil War.
We found out about the individuals and events that have shaped the castle from Norman times to the present day.
Our tour guide told us about:
Medieval warfare/castle defence; Building materials and techniques; Medieval and Tudor architecture;
The Castle’s role in the Wars of the Roses and the Civil War; ‘Butcher’ Clifford and his family;
and their links with Royalty; Coats of Arms; The Household and its servants;
Heating/lighting/water supplies; Medieval and Tudor cookery.
Our Visit to The Beacon Country Park. We had lots of FUN!
A fun task of designing, making and evaluating our own vehicle.
We learnt all about wheels, axles and chassis and how they are combined
to make the framework of our chosen wheeled object, as well as how to create an
eye-catching body. Look at our designs below…
