DT Castle Construction!!

After all developing the practical skills we were able to design our castle which had to use the skills we had been taught. We also had to include a winding mechanism of a drawbridge. Then we had a couple of mornings where we built our castles which was great fun. We also learnt that sometimes you have to make amendments to a design so that parts join together, some of us also realised that making a large castle perhaps wasn't the best idea for the the time that we had. Have a look at some of our creative castles. You should be able to see tabs and flaps, 3D shapes, crenullations, walls, towers and a drawbridge that can move.
