Week 2: To finish off our Topic 1066, we visited a local-built Norman Castle: Conisbrough Castle! The English Heritage team were fantastic as they guided us through a workshop entitled Meet the Medievals. In the afternoon we walked around the castle itself, sketching interesting parts of the architecture as we went.
Week 1: What a start to the half-term we have had already! On Tuesday, we had our first parent session where we began to make miniature castle from Modroc! These will form the Keep of our Motte and Bailey castles to finish off our 1066 topic.
On Wednesday Year 5 took a short trip to St Marie's Cathedral in Sheffield where we learnt about the history of the Cathedral and its importance in the local diocese.
