The children have been busy making a castle for their current Mythical Lands topic, Castles and Dragons.
They have been designing their castle in their Literacy sessions and discussing their ideas in their Language sessions. They decided to paint it grey first because of the stone and discussed how to achieve this colour, then used rollers, and various sized brushes to achieve the desired effect.
It will then be ready to add more detail, most of the children are keen on turning it into an ice castle. This is all taking place at the children's pace, as their ideas develop, with the responsibility on them to choose the materials etc, thus giving them complete ownership over how the classroom looks and a deeper understanding of the theme they are immersing themselves in.
The children were also engrossed in other activities based on their Mythical Lands topic.
