Castle Fun!

User Rating:  / 0

A little while ago, we started a week with an exciting trip to Kenilworth Castle as part of our topic work.


The weather may not have been as kind to us as we would have liked but we wouldn’t let a little bit of rain dampen our spirits or spoil a fantastic and fascinating trip which taught us a great deal about life in a castle in medieval times.

While we were at the castle, we enjoyed a tour both inside and outside of the castle walls with our brilliant (and entertaining) guides George and Sonia. We learnt about how castles would have been both defended and attacked and we showed that we have learnt lots in school by answering questions we were asked.

Our guides were impressed and commented on how knowledgeable we were.

We used a range of BLP skills on our trip and were particularly good at questioning, asking relevant questions to extend and deepen our learning and understanding.

We also showed our absorption in our learning and we continued to learn independently using displays, artefacts and information that was available to us.

The day out was enormous fun and we learnt lots. It was a super start to the week which was then filled with follow up work on castles, swimming lessons, reviewing our learning in Maths and Literacy through assessments and dance practises for our big dance showcase the following week!
