Castles by Peter D. Riley


Castles by Peter D. Riley

The topics covered in this series are specifically chosen to help children to develop a sense of 'awe and wonder'. They are topic that children and teachers love and now meet perfectly the need of a more creative curriculum. Each topic is closely keyed into the requirements of different subjects in the national curriculum to provide a cross-curricular project. The books can also be used to provide additional activities to topics and modules already established in a school to generate extra interest. Activities are provided for children aged from 5 to 11 - enabling teachers to find activities at a level suitable for all their children - extending the more able and supporting the less able. This also means that the books are ideal for teachers who have to teach mixed aged classes and enables topics to be used throughout the whole key stage or school. Children of all ages are fascinated by all aspects of castles - who lived in them, what it was like to live in them and what happened to them. This book shows how this natural enthusiasm for a topic can be used as a basis for developing history, D&T, and science, motivating children to explore and think independently using their knowledge and skills. Topics explored in this title include: inside the castle walls; castle life; knights; into battle; and, the end of castles.

Because of Lovereading I have broadened my reading horizons with some really great books that I probably would never have chosen myself.

For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.
