Kings of the Castle!

The PP3 Castles and Knights topic culminated last week with a visit to Conisbrough Castle. The boys enjoyed exploring the ruined castle and discovering where the different buildings would have been in the bailey


They imagined what it was like to be a lord living in the keep, where he would have had his own personal chapel and garderobe.

The guides at the castle provided the boys with engaging tasks which helped them to develop as historians.  It was encouraging to hear how they were impressed, not only with the Birkdale boys' behaviour, but with their factual knowledge too.

The weather was glorious which made the day extra special for all involved, particularly at lunch time when the boys could enjoy their picnic outside sitting enjoying a view of the castle from the lovely grounds.
