Castle Day

Year 1 had a great day learning all about levers and sliders. We looked at lots of different toys and books that had different levers and sliders and made our own prototypes. We received a letter from Lord and Lady Hedingham from Hedingham castle saying that they needed our help to protect their castle. First we planned what mechanisms we could use by drawing it on our plan. Then we spent the afternoon creating our moving castles. At the end of the day we evaluated our creations, thinking about what went well and what we could’ve done better. We hope Lord and Lady Hedingham were pleased with our models.
