We have had a wonderful time designing and creating castles using clay. First we looked at pictures of castles then we drew our own designs of what we wanted to make. We wrote down extra details about the features of our castles and what they were for. We made our castle towers by rolling out our clay and wrapping it around a cylinder tube. Then we used a variety of tools and experimented with different techniques to create different effects for turrets, portcullises, battlements and parapets. We have looked at our finished castles and we have evaluated them against our original designs. We hope you like them!
