Castle Rising 'Big Bang' trip!

Year 5 and 6 experienced their 'Big Bang' for their current Theme, Castles and World War 1! They were lucky enought to visit Castle Rising!
On potentially the hottest day of the year, with temperatures soaring to 31 degrees, Years 5 and 6 travelled to Castle Rising in Norfolk. We all gasped in amazement as the coach pulled into the car park. The castle looked breathtaking in the sunshine and everyone couldn't wait to explore inside. In our groups we ventured around the grounds, explored the chapel ruins and wells and (I think the favourite) climbed the stairs in the castle to get to the top! The views were stunning and we learnt lots of facts by reading the information boards! Despite the heat we all had a great time and finished the day with a trip to the gift shop! Year 5, get ready to use this first-hand experience to support our learning in the classroom!
