Adult directed activity -  EAD

Usually we would have set this as your half-term homework but I think we all deserved a break! So instead it is this week’s creative task J Please make something related to our new topic – Castles. It could be related to our new T4W story or castles in general. It could be a picture, puppet, model, piece of writing, a story of your own (you could retell it and video it!), a non-fiction account of what you have learned about castles, an outdoor sculpture – whatever you want!
