History: Normans

Weeks 11 and 12 of school we learned about the Normans using Layers of Learning, year 2 unit 7.

We did map work (Battles of Hastings and Stirling Bridge).

We added a whole bunch of dates to our timeline. Some of those pages are getting pretty full.

The boys each picked a different famous Norman to give an oral report on (Cameron looks TIRED!).

We looked at pictures of the Bayeux Tapestry.

We made a little paper castle and then put strips of paper describing good governmental actions inside (and threw away strips with bad ones).

We colored Edward III’s coat of arms.

We learned about William Wallace and then watched a clip from Braveheart.

We colored a map of the Hundred Years War.

We made cannons.
