On Tuesday we had an amazing day taking on the roles and jobs of people that lived and worked in castles:
We visited knights training school, a castle kitchen, an entertainment room and also took on the role of cleaners. We also made and tasted bread and vegetable soup. We all had the best day and are now using this day as inspiration for our writing in the coming days.
As part of our immersion week, we are asking the children to come to school on Friday 9th September dressed as someone who may have lived or worked in a castle – people like servants, kings and queens, princesses, court jesters, knights etc
Please don’t feel you need to spend lots of money on these at short notice, it may be a costume you already have at home, a mask you can print and make from the internet or there are lots of crafty ideas online too. As part of our immersion week we will be making crowns etc also, so every child will be involved.
On this day, we will be doing lots of fun activities relating to our new expedition – we will make sure we share lots of photographs and videos so that you can see what we get up to.
Thank you for your cooperation. Mrs Parsons and Key Stage One Team xx
