On 25th June, our Year 3s, who have been learning all about castles and castle dwellers, enjoyed a fantastic trip to Warwick Castle. The weather was hot and sunny, a wonderful day for the visit. The children watched a bowman demonstrating his skills; an 18m tall trebuchet firing a cannonball; magnificent eagles demonstrating their abilities and joined the Kingmaker Tour to experience the sights, sounds and smells of castle life in the 15th century. They then enjoyed lunch in the cooler shades of the peacock garden, seeing these fabulous birds very close up! In the afternoon, the children climbed the steep spiral staircases of the towers and walked along the curtain walls, or climbed the mound, looking at magnificent views over the castle and the surrounding countryside. As always, our children’s superb behaviour meant they were excellent ambassadors for Fleckney School.
