Year 1 Clitheroe Castle!
We had a fabulous visit to Clitheroe Castle. In the morning the children looked around the castle keep and learnt about the walls, arrow slit windows, dungeon and entrance to the castle.
Next we learnt what it was like to live in a Castle in the past. We tried on the Armour of a knight and dressed up as the cooks cooking bread and chicken. We even made our own flour.
After that the children went to see the Blacksmith who informed us all about the way they would make the weapons for the knights in battle. Everyone had a fantastic day; the children can’t wait to continue their castle topic in school
We can now understand life in a castle.
