In a Land of Magic

Year 2 have been very busy already this year!

We have learnt about the features of castles and their purposes. We worked as a team to build a castle big enough for us to fit inside.

Our visit to Windsor castle made us realise just how ENORMOUS castles are!

We enjoyed the workshop where we got to dress up in a range of costumes and reenact castle invasions, and special cermonies such as awarding a knighthood.

We learnt about why castles have gargoyles and had the opportunity to make our own using clay. We had to push, pull and twist to manipulate the clay into different shapes.
Do you think our gargoyles would scare away the enemy?
