Year 2 - History

This term our History topic is 'Castles'. We have been busy learning about 'The Battle of Hastings', the first castles in the UK, castle structures, why they were built and understanding about the people living in medieval times. We will celebrate this topic with a trip to Warwick Castle on Monday 30th April.

Castle Project

Using their knowledge of  the different features of a castle, children were tasked to build a model castle. Through imaginative use of toilet rolls, pringle tubes and cardboard boxes, some wonderful castles were built with key features such as battlements. Some castles even included fully functional drawbridges!

Well done to those children (and parents!) that have made castles at home. The results were extremely impressive. They are all proudly on display in St Michael's Hall at St George's.


Castle Competition

We are holding an online poll open to all to vote for the most popular castle!
