Word of the Week


Meaning a large building, normally from the medieval time period, which has tick walls and fortified against attack with battlements, towers and in many cases a moat.

Example of using it in a sentence "Edinburgh Castle and Windsor Castle are great example of castles and we can go and visit them as we “Learn On The Go."

Castles were built by the Anglo-Saxons, Anglo-Normans so no surprise this word comes from Old English and Old French.

Spelling tip: This is one of our purple turtle words, so we are going to break up the word like this:

C + a + s + tle

Use the word as many times throughout the week. This can be verbally, in your written work or listen out for other people using it.
