What Makes a good Castle? Ask the King!

This term Year 2 have been asking the question, "What is a good castle?" 

King Henry and King James wrote to us to ask us if we could design a castle for them, as theirs was destroyed.  We started by thinking about the features of castles and then we designed our own, working out how we could keep the castle safe.

After we had evaluated our designs we were able to construct a prototype castle.  Once these were built we had the opportunity to present them to King James and King Henry!

We loved talking to the kings about our designs.
