The Battle of Hastings

As part of our new “Kings, Queens and Castles” topic Year One learnt about how King William defeated King Harold in the Battle of Hastings this week. The children ┬álistened carefully and split up into two armies – King Harold’s army and King William’s army before acting out the battle! Afterwards the children created their own drawings and art works based on what they had learnt.
