Year 4's Robin Hood Lookout Towers
To link with our core text and heritage theme in which we focussed on the legend of Robin Hood, the history of Nottingham Castle and caves, and the geography of Nottingham, Class 4 researched, planned and designed lookout towers for Robin Hood and his Merry Men to help them see potentially wealthy travellers whose wealth they might redistribute to the poor, as well as the Sheriff of Nottingham and his men from whom they needed to stay safe. The children learned how structures can be made stable and the shapes and support that can be used to strengthen. They also explored how to work with art straws to create models and here are some of the finished articles. The children worked really well and and refined their fine motor skills in the process. Well done Class 4!
