Our whole school topic this term is “Long long ago”. In Sycamores, Reception and Year One have been looking at castles. Last week the children were busy looking at how castles changed over time and thought about which castles would have offered more protection from invaders. They then created a time line of castles beginning with the Motte and Bailey which was very different to Bodiam Castle the children thought. We have also been learning about the different features of castles and how they functioned to protect from invaders.
