Castle School - October 2017 - STEM based activities and lessons based around Elizabeth Castle.
Castle School is activity and experiment based building castles and exploding cannons extravaganza for KS2 schools only and has been designed to support the Love your Castle campaign. Castle Schools is sponsored by Ogier.
Jersey Heritage have created a special lesson plan for teachers and thanks to Ogier are able to offer free visits (all transport costs paid) to the castle in October. The visit to the castle will include:
• Demonstrations of force, friction and explosions using two reenactors from the UK with cannons, gunpowder, missiles and siege weapons
• STEM based experiments for pupils based on Elizabeth Castle
• Coach to and from School and Castle Ferry trip
• Box of experiments, work books, lesson plans and scientific explanations for further use at school
Prebooking is essential and we expect that there will be high demand for this so please book early
We are aware that no all schools will be ablet o visit the castle so, we can bring the Castle School to you! In November and December we'll come to your classroom with etails of experiments, work books, lesson plans and scientific explanations for use in school and will include a number of materials needed for the experiments. We just won’t be able to lend you a cannon or a 17th Century engineer to demonstrate how to make gunpowder!
