Mountfitchet Castle & Year 1

If you have never been to Mountfitchet Castle, you really should go.  It's a very hands on venue, the children really didn't know what to look at first!  They got caught in the stocks, had to joust on a horse, fired some pretend arrows, got sent to jail and even had to deal with a rather inquisitive peacock!  They had a brilliant day.  They learnt about how the Normans spent their days, making their own clothes, spinning wool, making bread, using blacksmith skills to make armour and shields, swords & helmets. They tried on the heavy chain mail and helmets, looked at the rather gruesome ways in which people were executed and generally had a really good day.   Do go & have a look, if you get the chance.
