History: Year 6 Builds Motte & Bailey Castles
Year 6 recently spent time in lessons making their very own Motte & Bailey castles.
As part of a team, their brief was to firstly think about what the main components of their castle had to be Motte, Bailey, Palisade & Keep.
The children then had to plan their design before being let loose with the air drying clay, paint and matchsticks to build fences.
Bede's Prep School's Head of History said of the children's work, "I am always impressed with how well the children work in teams and, apart from a little bit of mess, you can see for yourself how good their final designs were!"
