The Battle of Hastings
In Year One, we have been learning about The Battle of Hastings. The children had a lot of fun re-enacting the battle, to further develop their understanding of the events. We then sequenced the battle in our books and looked at the Bayeux tapestry. We learnt about this important event because William the Conqueror built the first Motte and Bailey castles in England, after winning the Battle of Hastings in 1066, against King Harold.
