Princesses and Knights

Our pupils wanted to learn about ‘Princesses’ and ‘Knights’. We therefore planned and delivered a whole week upon this theme. The highlight of the week was when the whole school had exclusive use of Tutbury Castle for the day. We turned the castle into ‘Shelton Castle’ and the children received guided tours of the castle, made shields, met and interacted with knights and people from the past and also met Queen Elizabeth I. The week culminated with all children and staff dressing as princesses and knights and we held a special assembly to showcase all the children’s work and to see each other’s costumes. Furthermore, children undertook a wide range of activities in their classroom.
