On Monday, Year 2 had a fabulous day visiting Conisbrough Castle. This was a fantastic opportunity to bring their learning about castles alive!
Firstly, we looked around the bailey and tried to imagine what the castle would have looked like when it was built 850 years ago. The children had to use their enquiry skills to identify the prison, the kitchen and the great hall.
Afterwards, we climbed the steep stairs to look inside the keep. We saw where Lord Hamelin and Lady Isabel’s rooms and had the opportunity to go to the very top of the keep where we could see for miles!
In the afternoon, the children were able to experience the daily life of a person living and working at Conisbrough Castle. They investigated artefacts from the past, heard stories of the people who lived there and dressed in costumes.
The children represented our school wonderfully and we were all very proud of them. Well done Year 2!
