In 1066, William the Conquerer sailed from France Normandy. He sailed his boats to Hastings and took over England. He defeated Harold. Harold and his army lost because they had just been to York an defeated the vikings at Stamfod Bridge. They they had to walk to Hastings in 5 days and fight again. The men were very tired.
William the Conquerer came with 7000 men and lots of horses.
Morgan and I painted a shield each. I did colours everywhere and Morgan painted a dragon head on his shield.
We went on a kids trail and had to punch stamps into the trail paper with little tiny spikes which had the clues.
We learned lots of things about the battle of Hastings. We picked up the swords and shields and they where very heavy.
