During this term we have been studying the topic of medieval England which we have linked to the famous legend of Robin Hood. As part of this topic for our Design Technology, we have designed and created our very own medieval castles. The children worked in groups to use different materials to create these castles including a keep and draw bridge. They have really enjoyed this activity and have even depicted a scene of medieval life inside their castle!
Continuing this theme in art, class 3 have created a collage of Sherwood Forest. They used layering techniques to create a ‘snap shot’ of the forest. As you can see, their finished collages are very effective.
