We had a brilliant time on our trip to Whittington Castle! All the children loved dressing up as different people who lived in the castle when it was built and we really impressed "Mistress Sue" with our excellent knowledge of castles on our guided tour. Then we played a magic tunnel game, which either turned us into bad or good mythical characters. We ended up with some smelly trolls and nasty dragons! Thankfully, we had shields to protect ourselves. We finished our day with a funny story and a maginifecent medieval feast. All of the children behaved superbly and were very polite and inquisitive all day (although, they did find it very funny putting me in the stocks!!).
After spotting a hedgehog hibernating in a pile of wood, we decided to learn more about them. We were very interested to find out why they had so many spikes and why they hibernated.
