We had a fantastic WOW day for our new topic, ‘Towers, Turrets and Tunnels’. First we examined the social pyramid of a castle and identified who we had dressed up as. We dressed up as Queens, Kings, Knights, Noblemen, Lords, Princesses, Jesters and Peasants. We discussed the role of a King and Queen in a castle.
We then learnt about the role of a Knight and found out about his armour. We discussed that each Knight had his own different coat of arms and shared these on our costumes. We enjoyed watching a video of Knights taking part in a medieval sport called Jousting. We then took part in our own Jousting tournament outside! It was great fun!
After, we learnt about a medieval banquet and discussed what people ate who lived in a castle. We found out that people used their hands or knives instead of forks. We even had our own entertainment from our very own class Jester! Finally, we finished our banquet by taking part in some medieval dancing. We are really looking forward to finding out more information about castles in our new topic!
