In term 4 in St Andrew’s class we have been learning about 1066. We have learned about the events of the year if 1066 and created a timeline together to order the events. We have also linked our learning with out LKS2 production to make it even more fun and engaging. We have written a letter to William the Conqueror to complain about the unlawful death Harold Godwinson, as well as a playscript about the Battle of Hastings. We also researched and created fact files about castles, as well as investigating good castle locations using online Ordnance Survey maps. We are now experts on Norman Castles!
In DT we created a small embroidered square after learning about the Bayeux Tapestry and recreating in through a series of sketches. We learnt that the Bayeux tapestry is over 70m long and has many different panels showing different events of 1066.
