Welcome to our Term 1 Topic
Here is a taster of what we will be learning about in this topic:
It’s probably the most famous date in English history – we’re travelling back to 1066! These are troubled times and there is danger afoot. A much-loved king is dead and a French Duke has staked a claim for our kingdom. Not to mention all the other wannabe monarchs! Discover a changing England, shaped by shires, protected by castles and ruled by foreign knights. Use the famous Bayeux Tapestry to explore the significant events of 1066. What happened when, and how did William come to be called the Conqueror? Design a castle with defences strong enough to hold back the enemy. What about a space for fine dining and revelry? Try and build a happy (but safe!) home – you’re the architect! Are you ready for the Norman invasion? Then don your armour and watch your back!
