Towers, Tunnels and Turrets

We are looking forward to getting stuck in to our new topic, based all around a castle theme. We will discover what a drawbridge is, find out how to cross a moat and discover how to climb a tower. We shall be reading a variety of texts based around castles and dragons as well as looking at some traditional tales. Our design skills will be put to the test as we plan our own model castle and then make it. Unfortunately, we can’t visit a castle at this current time but we are lucky as we have our very own castle in the playground, ready for us to role play on!

As well as all this, we are going to spend lots of time outdoors, planting seeds and nurturing plants, getting our outdoor area looking lovely and hopefully growing some vegetables that we will be able to harvest later in the year.
