This history pack, aims to support teachers in developing KS2 learners' knowledge and understanding of everyday life in medieval Wales by looking at Castles.

Looking in particular at clothing, entertainment, food, transport, homes, and work, the resource should support schools in addressing the kinds of historical skills and ideas referred to in History in the National Curriculum for Wales and the recommendations set out in the Donaldson Review of the curriculum. In particular the resources focus on promoting:


  • learners’ understanding of castles, the most obvious symbol of the Middle Ages.
  • learners’ historical skills of chronological awareness, interpretations of history, historical enquiry and communication and organisation;
  • learners’ skills in literacy, numeracy, critical thinking and digital competence;
  • learners’ knowledge and understanding of the Cwricwlwm Cymreig and of Education for Sustainable Development and Global Citizenship (ESDGC); and
  • opportunities for assessment for learning, by providing challenging, stimulating and relevant historical activities.
