Year 2 at Colchester Castle

As part of their topic this term on Towers, Tunnels and Turrets, Year 2 had a fabulous time at Colchester Castle.

They were given a guided tour of the castle by either Sir John, a knight of the realm, or Lady Holly, who was the wife of the present Lord.

They explored all parts of the castle including the ramparts at the very top of the castle.  Their tour guides informed them of some very interesting facts.

As part of their learning this term Year 2 will be writing a recount of the visit and they looking at the different types of materials that are used to construct bridges. Year 2 will also be looking at different towers around the world and building their very own castle with a working drawbridge using levers and pulleys.
