the globe theatre - foundations

Today in y4 we embarked upon an ambitious technology project. We are aiming to build a representation of the Globe theatre, using (real!) wood for the main structure. We sawed and glued a lot of pieces that we then assembled into panels that will be clamped together to form the cylindrical shell. It won't be an accurate scale model but will hopefully bear more than a passing resemblance to Shakespeares old stomping ground. I'm envisaging it taking a good few weeks to complete as we only get an hour or so once a week in which to do it. I'll hopefully post pics as it takes shape - if I can remember to take them in the heat of construction.
