Year 1 Visits Durham Castle | May 18, 2022

Year 1 on their trip to Durham Castle.

Year one visited Durham Castle on the 16th May (1CW) and Tuesday 17th May (1S). They all had a great time exploring the castle and finding out about its features. Some of the children dressed up as the kings and bishops connected to the castle history. In the afternoon the children made their own cardboard models of castles and were challenged to make a strong castle wall that the teachers tried to knock it down!

A fun and educational day out.

Year 5 visited the Oriental Museum in Durham as part of this term’s history topic; the Ancient Egyptians. They looked at and were able to handle a range of real Egyptian artifacts and also dressed as Egyptians and learned all about how to mummify a body and why this was important to the Egyptians. Finally, the children saw (and smelled) a real Ancient Egyptian Mummy.
