Y7 Castle Construction Challenge

On Wednesday 27th November 2013, the long awaited results were announced by Mr McCabe. This could only be the year 7 castle construction competition!

Castles of all shapes and sizes lined up, all hoping to win.

Mrs Hewlett-Parker came to read out the results and to give the winners their prizes.

It was a very close result, and the winners were:

Winners: Chloe Green, William Odlin

Runners up: Phoebe Whitelock, Kian Donaldson

As a competitor myself, it takes a lot of time and effort to get your castle how you'd like it. I did a traditional motte and bailey castle, including the courtyard and moat. It was very enjoyable, yet some areas were challenging. I enjoyed looking for ideas from motte and bailey impressions and the hardest part was to cut the lollipop sticks and trying to keep them straight up around the circular courtyard (to make a fence).

What an event! If the next year 7's do a similar competition (as this one was so spectacular), I wonder who will win...
