This week we have been making a fire place,great door,bricks, and fripperies. We also made knights and there are four of them. We had to follow instructions to make simple shapes like squares and ovals. We had to measure them different sizes.
To make the great door we used cardboard and paper. We painted the cardboard brown and the paper grey. The cardboard is brown because we are putting that on the door to make a great door and the bricks are for the out side of the door. We are putting the bricks out side the door so it look like the out side of a castle door.This is a
link for a great castle. We have also made portraits and made the frame with cardboard and coloured the picture with oil pastels.
Mr McLaren showed us a website called Soundation. We are going to make music to play when our guests come to visit the Magic Castle.
This week we have been making suits of armour, maps and hanging portraits on the wall. The past few weeks we have been reading “Charlie Bone and the Castle of Mirrors”. We have stripped the writing wall in our classroom and we are putting up brick panels.Yesterday we were making frames for the portraits we made them by cutting the shape of the frame out of cardboard then we stuck stuff like pasta shells with glue then we painted them after the glue had dried.

This weeks blog post is about our class novel Charlie Bone and the Castle of Mirrors. So far we have only read chapter 1 and so far it sounds like a good book so it should be good through out the book. This week’s homework is maths but also we have to research about any castle in the world and bring back 6 facts for Friday so we will see on Friday all the facts. Mine was on Edinburgh castle .
