In Owl's Class today, we were very lucky to have a visitor (Sue) from Wallingford museum to give us a talk about Wallingford Castle and its Anglo Saxon / Norman history. As we have been learning about Medieval Britain this term, it seemed very fitting and relevant to our studies. The children had lots of fun being 'archaeologists' and practised using maps and magnifying glasses to find historical features. It is fair to say that they had a wonderful morning finding out so much about our local history. Did you know that the castle was constructed by William the Conqueror to defend the river crossing at Wallingford, giving him easier access to London?
