Castle Architects in Year 1

In summer term Year 1's topic is Castles, Kings and Queens, the children had a great start to their new topic when focussing on castles this week. After researching and learning about the different components of castles they were inspired to design their own castle.  First, they drew their individual castle design, thought about the materials required and how they would make it.  Next, the children worked in groups to collaborate on a single design for their team, using aspects of their individual plans. Then the practical fun began with the children working together to build a replica model from cardboard.

“I will use screwdrivering to bolt the pieces together.”

“I did the sign of crosses on my castle so that if Jesus wants to, he knows he can come in.”

"I'm using a wrench to fix things tightly to my castle."

"My castle has a clock, flags, bricks, a window and a gate."

"It is four o'clock in my castle."
