Year 2 visit to Mountfitchett Castle

On Tuesday 23rd October, Year 2 went to visit Mountfitchett Castle.  As our topic this term has been castles and dragons, it was a fantastic way to end the half term.  We explored the castle and its surrounding village that is now a hands on and interactive open air museum.   The children loved spotting features of castles that we have learned about and trying on the Norman Knights helmets and shields.  Putting each other in the stocks and giant water balloon catapults were cause for much amusement.  We had a great day in the Autumn sunshine. Thank you to the amazing parent helpers that made the trip possible.
