Key Stage 2 | Subject: History, English, Drama | Topics: Normans, Castles | Session Type: Route-based
It is 1097 and William I's greatest fortress and palace, the White Tower, has just been completed.
One of William's courtiers will help students explore this magnificent keep, examining its exterior, defences and symbolic power as the great 'Norman fist on Anglo-Saxon soil'.
This drama session encourages children to find out more about William I – both as conqueror and king. Through role-play activities, children will gain a better understanding of the events which lead to the Norman Conquest and its impact.
