As part of the England theme the children in Mrs Dykes class visited Prudhoe Castle.
Before the visit we had been learning about the features of a castle. At Prudhoe castle we saw the battlements, the arrow slits,where the drawbridge would have been, the Keep and the Great Hall.
We looked at a large book about how and why Prudhoe Castle was built.
We constucted a castle using building blocks following numbers on the blocks.
We enjoyed our day and consolidated our knowledge about castles.
