Kings and Queens of the Castle!

Kings and Queens of the Castle!

As part of Pre-Prep’s ‘Turrets and Tiaras’ topic for the Lent Term, Reception children recently visited Warwick Castle. After drawing their version of a castle in the classroom, the children were in awe to see a real one.

The group went through the portcullis, climbed the battlements and were able to learn all about the different parts of a castle. They also spent time learning about the history of the castle and its people, with the children taking a particular interest in the traditional crafts such as Stonemasons and Fletchers. The children were excited to be able to hold real chainmail (and experience how heavy it is) and try on an actual Knight’s helmet.
