The children put their learning into practice when they visited the actual site of the Battle of Hastings. The children were able to see where the events they have been learning about took place, have extra information from the tour guides and become warriors in a mock battle.
The guides were impressed with the knowledge of the students, and expanded their knowledge by explaining the events, weapons and characters in more detail.
The children have produced some great projects about William as their homework task. Many are on display in and around the classroom, but here are two PowerPoints to share.
Bayeux Tapestry Making
After studying the Norman invasion of England, the children demonstrated their knowledge of the events by recreating the Bayeux Tapestry with their DT skills. Thanks to seamstress Mrs Guntripp, the children were taught how to thread and do running stitches to make their scenes come to life.
