Why not challenge your KS3 students to find out more about Windsor Castle as a medieval fortress? They can explore why the Castle was built in its strategic location by William the Conqueror (below), its style, defensive features and how the enemy might have attacked such a formidable stronghold.
This 16 page workbook, developed to support our KS3 learning sessions, can also be used as a resource for self-guided visits and helps to focus the pupils' attention on the 900 year history before them. There is space for sketches and notes, and it is perfect for follow-up work in the classroom, acting as a lasting record of the pupil's visit. The answer book gives adult helpers the information they need, so no-one needs to be an expert, and the open questions encourage discussion and ideas among your students.
