Year 7 Castle competition

The History department set a "build a castle"castle competition for all Year 7 students as homework (they had a month to build it) as they have been learning about the Norman Conquest and how William the Conqueror used castles to control the Anglo-Saxons.
They learned about different types of castles: motte and bailey, stone keep and concentric castles.
Mrs Bailey created the competition as this would motivate students to build their best their best castle possible and get everyone else in the school involved in the voting process.
The results were astonishing and everyone was absolutely amazed at what the year 7's could produce. We look forward to setting the same challenge for other KS3 year groups this year!
