Little pupils in BIG castle!

Last Wednesday, our Nursery and Reception children set off for an adventure in Norwich Castle. Here is what they told us:

We were looking forward to being kings and queens for the day!  When we arrived a lady met us and told us all about the castle and who used to live there. We all wore crowns and some of us dressed up. We explored and discovered all the things in the castle. We visited the great hall and the old toilets. We are very glad they are not like that today! We even saw a very deep well which people had to get their water from. We dropped pennies down to see how deep it was. We had a story about a castle and made castles using building bricks.

“I loved the well. It was really fun dropping the pennies down. They went down a long way.” Charlie (Reception)
“Did you know, the castle is 99 years old?” Charlotte (Reception) Editor’s note: it is actually 900 years old!
“We pretended to open the castle door with a really, really big key.” Eddie (Nursery)
“I really enjoyed dressing up.” Samaara (Nursery)
