Year 1 Summer 2
This term it has been a “Right Royal Do!”. We started our enquiry off with a visit to Warwick Castle. We learnt about what a castle looked like and it’s features, what they did to protect the castle and what it was like living inside a castle.
Our trip then inspired us to design and paint our own shields so we are recognised on the battle field.
On Wednesday 20th June we had an engineer come in to help us design and build vehicles. We learnt how to turn a shoebox into a vehicle that moved on four wheels. First we measured the lengths of dowel and cut them to our measurements. Then we measured the position for the holes and punched these out. Next we placed the rods through the holes and attached our wheels. Finally we decorated our vehicle, some into royal carriages and others into royal cars.
We have learnt so much in our enquiry through visiting a castle, stories, books and websites. The challenge of making a castle with moving parts were fantastic.
It has been a wonderful end to Year One, finishing with Sports Day and a Royal Banquet!
Good luck in Year 2!
Have fun making a colourful picture with Bing and Flop.
