Year 4 Trip to Colchester Castle Museum

Our class went to Colchester Castle to learn about the Stormin’ Normans.

Our first activity was to build an arch, we had to work together as a team and then test how strong it was. The first time wasn’t successful but the second time it stood up without scaffolding!

Our Guide at the castle showed us around. We went up a steep stone spiral staircase to the roof of the castle. We could see for 25 miles from the battlements. There was a model castle that was very realistic, we also learnt about herbs and medicines and dressed up as medieval people. We visited the castle prison before going to the gift shop.

Thank you to Mrs Barber and Mr Daniels for an amazing trip.
