Year 2 Visit Mountfitchet Castle – October 2017

The castle is the only wooden reconstruction of a medieval motte and bailey castle, built on its original site, in the world! This gave the children a fantastic insight to what life was like after the invasion of William the Conqueror in 1066. We enjoyed a hands on experience, where the children were able to freely walk around the site, touch equipment and armour and explore the buildings. We particularly enjoyed trying out the stocks!
