Building Castles in Year 7

Year 7 are putting the finishing touches to building some amazing 3D models of castles. We have been learning about the history of castles as part of our humanities work. Year 7 have seen how the design of castles has changed throughout the historical timeline, but the purpose has always been one of defence.

Year 7

We asked the pupils to consider the idea of attack and defence in the design of their models. These themes were then incorporated into our models. Each year 7 group has given great thought as to how their castle can be defended. Catapults draw bridges and moats have all been built into our designs.

Year 7

Our castle work will continue in Year 7 with some storyboarding work around our models. We want the pupils to think of a story that takes place in the setting of their own castle. Words and images will be added to help tell the story.

Year 7

We are proud to present a look at the varied range of Year 7 castles in the video above.
