Autumn – A Knight's Quest
Year 2 children are on a quest - dare you succeed!
Quest 1: become a world champion archer. What does it take to accurately shoot at a target? What will you use to make a bow?
Quest 2: become a knight. Do you have what it takes to be a knight? Are you limited by gender? How does the queen recruit her knights?
Quest 3: defend the realm. We become Historians to find out about castles, who worked in them and why their position is important to an area.
Quest 4: take care. After receiving a mysterious package children speculate what it might contain. We look at the characteristics of invertebrates, insects, amphibians and birds compared to mammals.
Any quest would not be complete without a celebratory banquet at the end - who will join us?
Questions we'll be asking:
- Who lives in a castle?
- What were castles for?
- How were castles built?
