Towers, tunnels and turrets

We are going to Colchester Castle, how exciting.  We are going to look at the story of Rapunzel and build her a new tower.  We will explore digging deep, deep down to make burrows just like animals that live underground. So much to explore and do.  At the end of our topic we will invite our parents to come and share what we have learnt.
