Ash Classes trip to the Tower of London today to support our learning in Capital and Culture for Kings/Queens unit. We were learning about what life would have been like in the Tower for Kings/Queens in the past and the different ways that the Tower protected the royals.
As the most secure castle in the land, the Tower guarded royal possessions and even the royal family in times of war and rebellion. But for 500 years monarchs also used the Tower as a surprisingly luxurious palace. Throughout history, the Tower has also been a visible symbol of awe and fear.
We took some pictures of the visit, which can be seen in the gallery below. You can see how excited the children were to be visiting such a historical venue in the heart of our Capital.
