Towers, Tunnels and Turrets

Picture 1

Climbing the battlements or tunnelling in the ground, there’s a whole world of adventure and fun to be found!

 

This  half term, we will visit a real castle to explore the towers, battlements and maybe a secret tunnel or two! We’ll learn all about the different parts of a castle and describe how they have changed over time. Using a wide range of materials, we’ll build models of castles and test the strength of our structures. We’ll learn the stories of Rapunzel, The Three Little Pigs and The Three Billy Goats Gruff and create models inspired by them. Maps and photographs will help us learn about the tallest buildings and the longest tunnels in the world. We’ll find out about the amazing Victorian engineer, Isambard Kingdom Brunel, and improve our PE skills by playing attacking and defending games.


At the end of our project, we’ll have so much to share! We’ll display our amazing structures and share our knowledge in a special question and answer session.
