Topic Challenges

Our Topic Challenge for this half term is 'Who Lives in a Castle?'. 

In this topic we will be learning all about castles and the people who live in them.  As part of this topic we will be listening to and working with lots of different stories.  We will also be looking at what castles are made out of and the materials you can find inside them.  To help us with our learning we will be going to the theatre to watch a pantomime.
