Grand Designs for Year Two

Year Two have been travelling back in time this week to discover that the first castles were Motte and Bailey Castles. The children found out why and where they were built as well as named and explained the main features.


Following on from this, the real challenge began and each class built their very own Motte and Bailey Castle using sand, lollipop sticks and all sorts of other objects. There was certainly a lot of collaboration between the different groups of children to be witnessed as well as a good amount of curiosity. Most of all, it has to be said, this task proved a lot of fun and definitely brought history to life.
