This week B6 have been learning about some of the history of the UK. They have found out about castles and what they were used for, using their knowledge to design, build and paint their own junk model castle. The children have also identified the different countries of the UK, locating and creating a map of famous castles in different parts of the country using the laptops and ipads. Alongside their regular English lessons, practicing key literacy skills, B6 have found out about mediaeval battles, using addition and number work to calculate the cost of an army. As well as this they have designed their own swords and shields while learning about the everyday life of knights and their coats of arms.
