KS1 lay siege to Warwick Castle

Posted on 10th October 2017 • By Marie Bradbury • Categories: Birch Class, Cherry Class, Maple Class, St Georges, Uncategorised

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!

Take a look at the photos below to see what an amazing time we had!

    Rehaan had an amazing time . He told me all about it ,it sounds like they had a good time . Remember when I had been there .

    I really enjoyed going to Warwick Castle especially the Horrible Histories Maze. We had fun going through the wooden tunnel in World War 1 and managed to get 5 out of 6 stamps. If we’d have had more time we definitely would have got them all! As usual our children behaved impeccably! I wonder what our next trip will be?
