Literacy - Earlier on in the year we spent a week looking at castles around Wales. We really enjoyed learning about the features of a castle and built our own castles both inside and outside of the classroom, some even had moats around. I have put the PowerPoint about castles below if you wanted to go through it and talk about the features and see what the children can remember, they particularly liked the dungeons!
Today we are going to look at Knights. What is a knight? What do you think knights do? What do you need to become a knight? Look through the 'A Knights Armour' PowerPoint and discuss why he needs to wear armour. Your task is to draw your own knight and describe him/her. You could write what it takes to be a knight...Must be strong, brave, fast etc.
Challenge - Knights wore their 'Coat of Arms' on their armour to make sure they were fighting the right people and not members of their family. Can you create a family coat of arms together, do you have a family motto? Is there a symbol that would represent your family? See the examples below for some inspiration.
