In P2 we set about learning the features of a castle by constructing our own castle board. First, we got some large pieces of thick card and cut it to look like a castle wall with the battlements at the top. The children next painted the wall with grey paint then printed blocks of darker grey to resemble the stonework. Using templates, we cut out windows and arrow slits. After that we made a portcullis with strips of black paper. Next, we made a stained-glass window using different sized black frames and squares of coloured tissue paper stuck onto self-adhesive book covering film. To finish we labelled the different features including the merlons which is the solid upright section on the battlements and the crenels which is the space between them. Look at the photographs below which show the different stages of our castle board’s construction and marvel at our finished designs.
We can’t welcome you to our grounds right now, but we can offer you a virtual tour and we can answer questions via email or telephone. We especially like to chat face-to-face on a video call.
We have places available for 2021 entry in most year groups.
For now, we hope that this video, presented by our Headmaster, Mr Rob Taylor, will give you a flavour of what life is like here at Cargilfield. Our website and social media channels are kept up to date and hold a wealth of information about our school.
Our Registrar, Fiona Craig is available to contact via email: [email protected] and she will be happy to help you. Thank you
