Leeds Castle Capers
On Tuesday 13 June, a wonderfully sunny day, Year 4 went to Leeds Castle. We were treated to a train ride to take us from the coach to the entrance, then we took part in an amazing immersive whistlestop history lesson about how the castle was built, who it belonged to and when, and how it became privately owned. It involved a lot of pretend dying, which the children were very good at! After lunch we were treated to a tour of the buildings and were allowed into places not usually open to the public. We ended with a short play on the fantastic adventure playground area. It was a really useful and fun day out, fitting perfectly with our topic of ‘Who is in charge of Great Britain?’.
