Y2 Visit Conisbrough Castle
Our Y2 classes visited Conisbrough Castle
this week—braving the cold wintery weather
to learn about castles, who lived in them and
what it was like to live in a castle. They enjoyed dressing up and learning about weapons
and how to protect their castle from enemies. You can pictures from their visits on
their class blogs.
