Over the past week we have been writing a fact file on Warwick Castle and exploring Motte and Bailey Castles.
We have had a very creative week making Motte and Bailey castle models! The children have also been identifying the different features of a Motte and Bailey as well as comparing this to modern stone castles.
Please ensure that your child has a fruit/vegetable snack to eat after break time. After Year 2 pupils no longer get given fruit for their break time snack.
Please also ensure that your child has a bottle of water with them as well to keep hydrated throughout the school day.
We have PE on Wednesday and Thursday afternoons. Please ensure your child has their PE kit every day. We will be going outside so please make sure your children have jumpers and tracksuit bottoms the colder weather. In PE with me Year 3 are doing some squire training and with Mr Edwards they are exploring tag rugby skills.
