PUPILS from a Scarborough school showed off some real creativity after letting their imagination run wild to build model castles

The Year Seven students from Scalby School were tasked with making a Norman castle using any materials they could find - with their imposing looking mini structures formed from wood, clay and even sugar lumps.

The topic was linked to their work in lessons and student James Normandale, 11, came out on top after producing a grand seven towered castle complete with a settlement and grazing animals.

Head of History Andy Sutcliffe said: “James had clearly put an enormous amount of work into the design and construction of the castle and the attention to detail was excellent.

“Well done to all the students involved for all their efforts producing such high quality of entries.”

Headteacher David Read added: “The competition provides a great way for history to support our technology college specialism and picking a winner was very difficult.”
