Reception children have enjoyed a fabulous day at Newcastle Keep. We have been on an exciting tour of the castle, learning about the history of the castle and visiting the Great Hall, the dungeons, the chapel, the well, the solar room and many more. The view from the top of the Castle was amazing, overlooking the Quayside and seeing all the bridges, the river Tyne and the Sage. We could also see the trains leaving Central Station and passing right next to the castle. A highlight for some of the boys was spotting St.James Park!

We also enjoyed a fun workshop learning about knights and trying on armour and learning four sword moves. Our visit was complete with a visit to the gift shop for a souvenir.

Well done Reception, your behaviour and manners were exemplary!
