The children enjoyed their trip to Warwick Castle. They explored the castle grounds and castle itself, even climbing the towers and ramparts. They enjoyed watching and learning about birds of prey and how they were used thousands of years ago. They enjoyed role playing with real shields and armour. Finally they learnt all about Warwick Castle’s medieval defences, and how it would have protected itself during times of war. The children loved hearing about all the gruesome and nasty tricks and surprises defenders of the castle had up their sleeves to protect themselves during a siege!
