Norman Castle building in Year 4

During Week two of the Spring term, the Year 4s kicked off their new Theme with a castle building day! With their new learning question being, ‘Why were the Norman castles certainly not bouncy?’ both classes found themselves planning and creating their very own masterpieces! Some chose the very early motte and bailey design, whilst some chose the much later castles, made out of stone!

All children had been asked to gather resources over the holiday and then had time to meticulously plan their designs. From cardboard boxes, to milk bottle lids, with plenty of PVA and paint inbetween, all children were truly creative and used great initiative and Silverhill SPIRIT to finish their models. 

Mrs McBride and Miss Garrington we’re both extremely impressed with all of the children! What a sensational start!
