Tudor houses

Last week, Owls constructed their own Tudor houses by applying our Maths and DT skills. First, we talked through what a Tudor house may have looked like, noting that there are some examples right next to our school!  

We then looked at how 3D shapes are constructed through the drawing of a net and then the children had a go at drawing their own. We constructed the houses by making three 3D shapes; two cuboids and a triangular prism. The upper level of the house was larger than the lower level which historians believe may have been because ground space was limited and expensive!

The children finished off by decorating their houses, trying to recreate the traditional wattle and daub design. 

It was a tricky project and very fiddly at times but the end result was fantastic and they have all contributed to a fantastic looking display.
