This week we began building our castle models. In pairs, we worked to include key features we had learned about in previous weeks. Fortunately we had a wide variety of resources and discovered different joining techniques to connect the parts together.
A key feature we all wanted to achieve were working parts such as drawbridges. Several models have made a moveable portcullis. We worked very well with our partners and received many compliments from other teachers and adults in school on how well we worked and our creativity.
We also started a castle wall display. We worked in groups to make each part including arrow loops, battlements, drawbridge, turrets, windows and brick work. We’re sure you’ll agree it looks fantastic!
Enjoy the holiday weekend. See you next week.
