Arundel Castle Trip

29 November 2018

As part of this term’s history project about ‘Castles’, Year 5 visited Arundel Castle this week on a gloriously sunny day. Children had an excellent guided tour where they gained a lively sense of the construction, effectiveness and dominating presence of the castle.

They learnt how its inhabitants kept warm, their methods for repelling attackers and heard about the luxury in which the owners surrounded themselves. They visited the Armoury and Barons Hall and had some time in the Education Room handling artefacts and trying on costumes from the Medieval period.
