We have been looking at Castles, Kings and Queens as our topic, focusing on Queen Victoria as well as our literacy text 'Zog'. 

Prior to our visit to Windsor castle, the children used bricks to create their own castles which varied in height and width.

Year 1 and 2 visited Windsor Castle together, everyone was very excited although some were a little disappointed that we weren't travelling on a golden coach. 

We watched the guards marching, listened to a talk about how to defend a castle and then some children had a go at defending their own castle while the rest of the children marched to try to take it over. 

There was also the opportunity to become knights themselves trying on chainmail and a Henry VIII replica helmet. 

We learnt that when the Queen is at home the castle flies the Royal Standard and when she is not at home it is the Union Flag that can be seen.
