Year 2 Visit Raby Castle

Year 2 visited Raby Castle on Thursday 11th October as part of our ‘Towers, Tunnels and Turrets’ topic.

We had an amazing day looking around the castle and identifying its features and re-enacting jobs and roles of people who lived there.

We found it really interesting finding out about the differences between living then and now in castles and we were surprised to find out Raby Castle is 700 years old!

Some of the children even became knights!
