As part of their current topic, our Year 2 children have enjoyed a great day out at Conisbrough Castle today.
First, Year 2 looked around the inner bailey and found out what the different rooms were used for. After that, they explored the inside of the keep and were able to look at many of the features of a castle and find out what these features were for. They even went to the top – what a view! After lunch, they learned all about Lord Hamelin and Lady Isabel, who lived in the castle when it was built 850 years ago and found out what it was like to live in a castle, either as a wealthy lord and lady, as a servant or even as a prisoner. They had a fantastic time learning. Well done Year 2!
