Autumn 2 - Towers, Tunnels and Turrets

This half term our learning journey is

Towers, Tunnels and Turrets





Climbing the battlements or tunnelling in the ground, there’s a whole world of adventure and fun to be found!

This term, we will visit Windsor Castle to explore the towers, battlements and maybe a secret tunnel or two! We’ll learn all about the different parts of a castle and describe how they have changed over time. Using a wide range of materials, we’ll build models of castles and test the strength of our structures. We’ll learn the story of Rapunzel and Voices in the Park and create models inspired by it. Maps and photographs will help us learn about the tallest buildings and the longest tunnels in the world. We’ll find out about the amazing Victorian engineer, Isambard Kingdom Brunel. At the end of our project, we’ll have so much to share!
