For our DT project we have designed and created our own castle which have key features of a castle, turrets, drawbridges, double castle walls and keeps. Here are some of the finished products along with creation shots.
We have started reading phrases/sentences, using our phonic knowledge and found the corresponding picture to demonstrate our understanding.
We have explored and re-enacted "Jousting", to understand the concept and to enable us write a diary entry based on "A day in the life of a knight". It was great fun!
Grouping & Sorting
We have used practical resources today to look at the mathematical concept of grouping and sorting. This was a great visual activity to ensure the children had a good understanding of this concept.
Roles Within Castles
