First Year Historians create 'Swiss Roll' towers and chocolate model castles

First Years in 1LEG Tutor Group constructed a wide array of inventive and colourful model castles as part of a History assignment earlier in November.

The students were tasked with designing either a motte and bailey or a stone keep castle, it then had to have accurate labelling and clear defensive features. From 'Swiss Roll' towers to resin moats, from actual working drawbridges to 2 feet tall cardboard keeps with sand-covered lego and a palisade made of chocolate fingers, it's safe to say the students created the most inventive, detailed castles you could imagine. 

They handled themselves with maturity when various visitors popped in to see their work and during their peer-marking. The students marked one another's work and then picked a winner. Everyone was taking notice of the brilliant work the students put in, with the class even being named as Georgians of the week recently.
