Let us head inside the castle walls and travel back in time to find out what life was like for kings, queens, peasants and servants in our first topic ‘Towers, Turrets and Tiaras!’ Meet ‘Rapunzel’ who lives in a tall, tall tower and the wicked witch who locks her away there.  Let us get busy building and designing our own forts and castles. How tall will they be? What will they be made from? What defences should they have? Lots of royal fun to be had!
