Cippenham Moat Trip
The Year 2 children have been learning about ‘Landmarks’ this term. Last week our children went on a Geography walk to Slough’s most famous local landmark, Cippenham Moat. This moat is what remains of a 13th Century Royal Palace which was created by King Henry III also known as Henry of Winchester - King of England, Lord of Ireland from 1216. The remains of this moat are in an enclosed area and are noticeably covered by vague depressions and banks – representing the foundations of where the palace once stood. Students looked at the human features that make this moat a local landmark.
