What fantastic homework Birch Class!


 Well done to all the children who participated in the Year 2 (Key Stage 1) SATs last week. I am extremely proud of each and every one of you! Thank you parents for supporting your children at home and listening to and following advice on how to do this.
Believe me when I say, they have all worked so hard and that is evident in the work they are producing!

SATs results will be published with the end of year school reports.

Warwick Castle

Our topic this term is Dragons, Knights and Castles

This term the children we will be learning about Castles, Knights and Dragons.

We have lots of exciting activities planned during the Summer Term. We are planning a visit to Warwick Castle to get a real feel for what it was like living in these grand buildings during the Medieval period.

In our ART and DT lessons we will be designing our own castles and weapons to defend them from a possible attack. 


The first castles were made of wood!


Windsor Castle is the oldest still occupied European castle.


Castles were built strictly for defence purposes to keep enemies out!


The stairs in castles always turned clockwise.


There were no toilets, but rather little constructions called “garderobes,” a hole through which users would aim their waste products, which would ultimate go through shoots which wound up in the surrounding moats. EWWWWWWWW!!!!
