Our Crest Crazy Classroom!


We were so inspired by our visit to the Lady Chapel of Westminster Abbey, that we have been designing and making our own crests ever since! As part of our work learning about Camelot and the Knights of the Round Table, we designed and made our own banners to show our heraldry (we had the House of Dulwich and the House of Clare amongst others!) to hang in our classroom.

 We worked in teams to design and make them from tissue paper.

Next, we planned and created our textile heraldic crests. Following some research on existing crests, we looked at common features before drawing our own designs. Next, we selected our fabrics and cut the pieces out carefully.
Finally, we used our sewing skills to complete our crests.

Our third crest project was for homework. We have been learning about our diocese in R.E. with Mrs Hopkins, so we combined our learning from different areas of the curriculum to create a new crest for Southwark Diocese. We had to consider which images or symbols would best represent the diocese.

Here are the marvellous results:
