Year 5 Rockingham Castle Trip

On Tuesday Year 5 had a fantastic day at Rockingham Castle. We had our own tour guides to escort us around the castle telling us about its history. We explored the gardens and visited the dungeons! Some of the groups even climbed the 60 steps to the tower. We had a very enjoyable and memorable day.

"I liked hearing about the huge paintings especially the ones with the ghosts in!" Ryan

"The view from the tower was amazing. You could see for miles." Phoebe

"I liked the waterfall in the gardens. The maze was great to explore." Adele

"I enjoyed hearing about the history of the castle right from 1066 to nowadays." Alex
