20160509_105029On Monday 9th May, Year 4 visited Lincoln Castle to learn more about life during the Norman period. We had a fabulous day and took part in lots of fun activities During the morning, we handled Norman artefacts took part in Knight training. Also we designed and made our own Norman shields and attended a banquet. Some children took on the roles of the King, Queen, Lord and lady. We listened to jokes from the jesters and learned a medieval dance.
After a picnic lunch, in the castle grounds, we walked around the castle walls and we could see the motte with the remains of the old keep. Unfortunately, we didn’t have time for the gift shop but the children had a fantastic time.
