Oakenclough Class have been learning all about castles and towers throughout their topic lessons. They have visited Liverpool Castle at Rivington, which is a ruin dating back to 1200s, to enable
them to really understand the concept of the age and strength of these structures. Lancaster castle also remains a firm favourite.
They identified the remnants of key features associated with the period of time the castle was
built, testing their prior-knowledge of how castles evolved from the iron age onwards. Using
their imaginations, they considered what life would have been like for those living in the castle at the time it was built. They finished off their trip with a picnic by the lake, what a fabulous time everyone had!
