Is it possible to make things perfect?


Do you think it is possible to make things perfect? This term we are focussing on the History of Nottingham to see whether we now have a perfect place to live, compared to Nottingham 100 years ago. Within this, we will be exploring different castles across the UK and designing and making our own perfect drawbridge.


To launch our new enquiry, we would love the children to become knights, dragons, Kings or Queens for our first day back after Easter (Monday 19th April) ready for our day of exploring castles of their own and even taking part in a medieval banquet!

Is it possible to make the perfect draw bridge?

We will be designing and building our own draw bridges using wheels and axles. We will be testing the bridge to see how we can make it stronger and more stable.
