Year 2 had a fantastic time at Mountfitchet Castle on Monday 7 November.  We explored lots of different buildings found inside the castle and really enjoyed seeing all the different animals.
We had great fun keeping watch from the towers and looking at the different ways to attack and defend the castle.  Some of the favourite parts were getting put in the jail cell and the stocks!
There were lots of helmets to try on and also chainmail.  We had a go at being a knight by sitting on the wooden horse and trying to hold the shield and lance up!
The children were very well behaved and really enjoyed the day in the sunshine.  They also enjoyed being the first children to wear the new high visibility jackets!
