Year 2 Newspaper Sculpture

Who would have thought that a material like newspaper could construct a strong structure like a castle.
Yesterday, to the children's amazement Darcy a visiting artist helped year 2 do this. The children worked together demonstrating reciprocity, resilience and great problem solving skills as they rolled and compressed newspaper in special machines that Darcy had invented. Then the strong sticks they made fixed together to create a sculpture of a castle. We have been learning about castles and William the conqueror in our history lessons. We don't think William the Conqueror would have wanted a paper castle but it was great fun creating one for us that even has the battlements at the top. This castle will be used in the outside learning environment so the children can enjoy their efforts.
Well done Year 2!
