Climbing the battlements or tunnelling in the ground, there’s a whole world of adventure and fun to be found!
This term, we will explore 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.
Help your child prepare for their project
The new projects run for the first half of the Spring term to Friday 3rd February. Homework contributions can be made throughout the half term, please make sure your child brings in something that they have worked on at home.
Below are a list of ideas for each project, try one of these or something else project related.
Play a tumbling tower game such as Jenga with your family. What are the best ways of keeping the tower upright? See if you can take some action shots or videos of the tower falling!
Go on a bridge hunt with your grown-ups around the local area, taking photographs to show your class. What types of bridge have you seen? Choose the most interesting bridge and see what you can discover about it online or at the local library?
Make a detailed diagram of a castle, labelling interesting features which might be found inside or out. Perhaps you could find out about ‘murder holes’, ‘garderobes’ or ‘loopholes’?
Make your own information book about castles, bridges or tunnels. Include downloaded images as well as your own drawings and diagrams. What fascinating facts can you find out to amaze your family, friends and teacher?
Design and create a model of a famous structure from around the world, using junk materials found at home. Will you choose London Bridge, the Leaning Tower of Pisa or perhaps the Statue of Liberty? Find a photograph of your chosen landmark to use as inspiration.
Find, on a world map or globe, all the famous landmarks you would like to visit. Which continents are they in? How would you get there? Talk to your grown-ups to explain your choices.
Look at websites telling the story of the ‘Three Little Pigs’. Draw a storyboard with six or eight sections. Add captions and images which could be used to help you create a short stop motion film.
