That's right Castles! Our Theme title is Brilliant Buildings and we decide to focus on Castles because we think they are pretty cool.


Have a look at our Knowledge Organiser below to learn some of the facts and vocab that we will be covering over the coming weeks.




Session 1


Today we are going to learn about a famous battle. Some of the first castles were built in Britain after the Norman invasion when the most famous battle in England took place – The Battle of Hastings.


Work through this pdf to learn more about the battle.
