Secure your children’s understanding of shapes and symmetry. We will teach and reinforce their knowledge about castles whilst also ticking off some D&T objectives!
Our outdoor workshop will develop your children’s teamwork and communication skills and allow them to experience the use of simple tools.
The children will then work as a whole class team to create a large scale ‘stick castle’, made from bamboo. This will incorporate their problem-solving skills with their knowledge of 2D and 3D shapes. The use of elastic bands to secure the bamboo structure is excellent for supporting the development of fine-motor skills!
Once we have built our large-scale, class castle, the children will create symmetrical flags to adorn their magnificent structure.These will be made using natural materials, hammered against a cloth to create imprints. Of course, being important residents at the castle the children will all need to create a crown out of natural materials to wear too!

The workshop lasts 2 hours and is available to book 10am-12pm & 1pm – 3pm.
