Year 1 went on an exciting trip to Dunster Castle this week.
During their visit they learnt about knights, got to try on armour and have a go at sword fighting. They explored the inside of the castle and learnt what is was like to live there, eating enormous feasts and having no bathroom! They had a tour around the castle grounds, getting to look inside the stables and the dungeons. They learnt how the castle was protected and managed to stay undefeated in its whole history. Finally they heard the tale of the Dunster dragon and visited the summer house at the top of the castle.
The children all had a brilliant time on their adventure. Jake said: “It was amazing”. Arabella said: “My favourite part was the sword fighting.” Cora said she “loved going into the dungeons” and Toby said “we learnt lots”.
