Today Miss Taylor introduced us to our Learning a Challenge topic ‘Has Nottingham Castle always been a castle?’ We thought about questions posed by Wyatt (Why were castles built?) and Declan (Why are castles built on hills?). To begin with, we looked at different types of castles and tried to order them from what we thought was the eldest castle, to the most recent. After, we learnt about why castles were built on hills and went on a hunt around the school grounds to find the best place to build our own castles. We had to justify to the rest of the group why we thought our placement was best!
