Castle Making Competition

October 20th, 2017

Nine of the winners standing behind their winning castles


In the first half of the Autumn term, the history department ran a competition for Year 7s to build a model of a mediaeval castle.

The Year 7s overwhelmed the department with entries, leading to a lunch time exhibition for the Year group and teachers. The models were judged on accuracy, effort and attention to detail.

However, two of the winning castles were not present on the day of judging. This was due to one entry being made out of ginger bread and another was a cake sculpted from a Victoria sponge cake. Both of these castles were eaten by their respective classes before the competition day itself.

After much deliberation, the history team of Ms McMahon, Mr Scivyer and Mr Russell picked ten winners. Their reward will be a day trip to the Tower of London, where they will see a lot of what they learnt through the project in action.
