We have started our new topic Towers, Tunnels and Turrets Topic with a tour of the tunnels in Fort Purbrook. Our favourite tunnel was the 'thunder' tunnel. We asked Tom our guide some fantastic questions and we guessed that it took 10 million bricks to build the fort. We are now looking at castles as part of our topic. We have been writing instructions on 'How to be a Knight' and have designed our own Coat of Arms which every Knight needs. We thought about the colours, animals and symbols that best represent us and wrote motto's for our shields. We have been finding out the names of the different parts of a castle - portcullis, bailey, barbican and the keep and we are going to use this information to draw our castles. In art we have used Paul Klee 'Castle and Sun' as our inspiration. As a keystage we are reading 'The Boy at the Back of the Class' which we are already enjoying and want to find out what happens next….
