Turrets and Tiaras - a topic celebrated in true style...

As our Turrets and Tiaras topic comes to an end we couldn’t think of anything better to do than have a royal banquet! The Kings, Queens, Princes and Princesses of Year 1 (along with a jester or two) celebrated their achievements over a delicious chicken pie.


The children have enjoyed many aspects of our topic, particularly finding out about various castle defence systems and comparing our kitchens today to a castle kitchen in the past.  In recent weeks we have used drama to inspire our writing when adapting the story of The Three Little Pigs, which now features three little knights on their quest to build strong castles to keep out the big bad wolf.

As part of our DT lessons we have built a lego set to use in our ICT lessons. During which we have used stop motion animation software to produce a film about Pinocchio who finds a magical sapphire that transports him to Bolsover Castle, or is he telling a fib? Look out for our film to find out for yourself!
