Year 1 Outing to Hedingham Castle

The Year 1 outing to Hedingham Castle took place on Wednesday. They were extremely lucky with the weather as the sun shone all day. Whilst at the Castle the children met a range of people who might have lived in the castle when it was built. They included an Archer, Monk, Soldier, Musicians and the Lady of the Castle. The jousting was once again particularly popular with the children. They used little lances to pick items up and whoever was the first to touch the shield at the end with the lance was declared the winner. Miss Smith confessed to being beaten by Matilda in her jousting race! Although they had lots of fun, the children learnt lots about Castle life as part of their history work.
