Reception and Prep 1 visited Tiverton Castle as part of their topic work on Fairy Tales and Castles.
The children were immediately greeted at the gates by Mrs Gordon who lives in the castle. As soon as the gates opened the children were quick to point out arrow slits and cannons in the entrance! Mrs Gordon gave an excellent tour around the building and ruins, telling fantastic stories of battles, people who had lived in the castle in the past, and the horrible jobs that children were made to do.
The highlight of the trip was trying on a range of armour, looking at real weapons that were used and feeling the weight of cannon balls. At the end of the trip Mrs Gordon commented that Trinity were the best dressed group that she has had! HC
