Framlingham Castle Visit - Year 3, 4 & 5

Year 3, 4 and 5 had an educational morning in and around the Castle on Friday exploring three different activities.  Unfortunately due to the weather, we were not able to go ahead with the planned KS2  assembly on the castle meadow as the rain was trying its hardest to ruin our morning… however… best of British!! We were determined not to be beaten and enjoy our morning, we headed off en masse. 

There were three activities:- a treasure hunt inside the castle looking for clues about the history and learning about the importance of the castle; Mr Bennet-King adapted the planned rounders game to enable a safe activity that all the year groups enjoyed to enhance teamwork and there was also a drama-based activity, where the children were able to rehearse and perform their favourite Ancient Greek myths to each other. 

Everyone really enjoyed the morning enhancing their learning about the various areas of the curriculum.    Thank you to all the parent helpers and volunteers who made this possible.
