Year 4 visited Alnwick Castle today. As part of their in depth look at the end of the Viking age and the events of 1066 we decided a trip to a real medieval castle was in order. We took park in role play activities as we stormed the castle and battled through the Barbican ending up trapped in a dungeon, seeing and feeling what a knight would wear and learning more about one of the North Easts most famous Knights, Harry Hotspur. Our day was topped off with a trip through Dragons Quest!
A great day out had by all in year 4.
