KS1 lay siege to Warwick Castle
Today KS1 had a fantastic time on our trip to Warwick Castle. Walking through the gatehouse, the children were able to spot the portcullis and murder holes. We also saw a trebuchet show, a birds of prey show, got lost in a maze, put Mrs Smith and Mrs Machin in the stocks and watched a bowman shoot arrows at a target! The children had a chance to explore the castle and find out what their jobs would have been if they had lived there in the past. Some of the children had a story read to them by a princess and others had a chance to look at the weapons and armour used by soldiers. When asked what their favourite part of the visit to Warwick Castle was, some of the children said:
‘My favourite bit was the bowman because he hit the bullseye.’ – Jenson
‘I liked the trebuchet.’ – Hashim
‘All of it!’ – Amaris and Kieran
Unfortunately, we were a bit late back to school but as one child said, ‘We’re late because we did all of those wonderful things!’ – Kyren
Another child said: ‘We’ve gone back in time, when are we going back to 2017?’ – Mussa
Unfortunately we can’t travel back in time everyday, so we’ll see you all tomorrow in 2017!
