Towers, Tunnels and Turrets - Summer 2 Topic

Ideas for things to do at home:

  • Play a tumbling tower game such as Jenga. What are the best ways of keeping the tower upright?
  • Go on a bridge hunt with your grown-ups around the local area. What types of bridge have you seen? 
  • Make a detailed diagram of a castle labelling interesting features which might be found inside and out. Perhaps you could find out about murder homes, garderobes or loopholes.
  • What fascinating facts can you find out?
  • Design and create a model of a famous structure from around the world using junk materials. How about  London Bridge, Leaning Tower of Pisa or the Statue of Liberty?
  • Using a world map or globe find all the famous landmarks you would like to visit. How would you get there?
  • Design a castle for Dukinfield - where would you put it? What would you build if from?
