We have been learning about fantasy stories and many stories that we have listened to have been based in a castle. Our favourite story is George and the Dragon by Chris Wormell. In our English lessons we have written a diary entry by the princess and a letter of apology from the dragon. Today we walked to the castle and looked to see if we could see where the story was set. We looked for Georges mousehole in the castle wall, looked for the dragons cave in the area around the castle and then went inside the grounds to see if we could find any features such as the arched windows and long banqueting room from the story. When we got back to school we had hot chocolate and biscuits. Mmmmmm
