Newcastle Keep

Year 2 visited Newcastle Keep as part of our unit ‘Towers Tunnels and Turrets’

We learnt about the different parts of the castle and how difficult it was to attack a castle.

We also learnt about what it was like to live in a castle and stood in the oldest room in the whole of Newcastle!

We went all the way to the top of the keep and enjoyed the fantastic view of Newcastle.

We also learnt how to be knights, starting as pages taking a goblet of wine to our lords and completing our training by learning how to use  sword.
