Real Life Castle Visit - Students dressed as knights for a castle tour

What a fantastic trip Year 1 had to Leeds Castle. They have been learning about houses and homes and one type of home that the children were particularly interested in was castles! They spent the week in the lead up to the trip researching castles and writing fact files in small groups. Can you imagine how excited they were when they got to explore a real castle? The tour guides took us around the castle grounds and showed us the different parts of the castles from the portcullis to the cellars, we got to see everything! We then got to hear the story of Leeds Castle and act out an interesting story about the Swan Princess and how she was rescued by the Brave Knight. All of the children got to dress up and take part in the performance. We were so sleepy after a wonderful trip, some of us even had a little nap on the way home!
