Rian sent me a written description of the fantastic job he did on his Norman castle. Well done to Rian! His description is below along with a picture of the castle:
So I used cardboard, styrofoam, markers, cocktail sticks, 2 toilet rolls, a box, a paint brush, PVA glue, an egg carton and a pencil.
First I used the styrofoam and the markers. I used green for the grass and blue for the water. I drew an eight to separate the water and the grass.
Next I folded cardboard to make the steps. I remembered the engineering project where I did the exact same thing.
After that I still had a second block of styrofoam so I got help to cut it into pieces of five. I used my paint brush and the PVA glue to glue the five pieces of styrofoam together. To do that I used my paint brush and I dipped it in the PVA glue. I put some PVA on both sides of the styrofoam and stuck them together. I let them dry for an hour on the ground and what I mean is on the marker. Then I used more PVA to glue them to the box and left them an hour.
I used the pencil to make the castle grey.
Next I put the cocktail sticks around the grass by the water to make a fence and I also put them around the castle so nobody could get in.
Finaly I sellotaped the castle on and I finished the Norman Motte and Bailey castle!
