Through the different areas of the curriculum, the children have taken part in a range of different castle themed activities. In our Literacy lessons, the children have been learning how to use adjectives to describe a castle for example: The castle has strong walls. In our creative area, the children have been busy making their own castles using the junk modelling materials. After we had finished making our model castles, the children then mixed together their own grey colour to paint the walls.
As part of our indoor free-flow learning, the children have loved building their own sandcastles and castles in the construction area using the new vocabulary that they have learnt to describe them. Some of the vocabulary we have learnt includes: tower, parapet, turrets and moat. To continue with this theme, in Maths, the children have been learning how to count different objects (castles) that cannot be moved. The children also enjoyed the problem solving challenge where they had to use the Numicon to build their own castle by placing them in a certain arrangement. We are all looking forward to continuing this learning topic as we prepare for our Celebration Ball next week!
