Okay, Year 4. Today we have two videos about life in Britain after The Norman Conquest (after William took the throne and control). 

Both videos contain different bits of information about the day to day life in that period of time. Watch either (or both) videos, make notes as you watch and then get creative! I would like you to record the information of what life was like but you can choose who's perspective you write from (a young boy, a young girl, a teenager, a soldier, a king, a noble person, a peasant) also you can choose how you record the information (make a fact file, make a story, write a diary, create a cartoon etc.)


This may take you a while to complete so it will be on the timetable for tomorrow afternoon as well.

I can't wait to see what you all come up with!
