Prep 5 Trip to Mountfitchet Castle

On Thursday 20 September, the children in Prep 5 travelled back almost one thousand years in time when they visited Mountfitchet Castle in Stansted. Here, they experienced what life was like for people living in a Motte and Bailey Castle during the medieval period in history. The children thoroughly enjoyed exploring the reconstructed Norman village, complete with burning log fires. They also loved meeting the tame fallow deer and other rescued animals which roamed freely throughout the Castle grounds. However, the undisputed highlight of the day was using a working catapult to fire water balloons at the teachers who were the targets! This was a fantastic trip which enriched the children’s learning in the classroom about the Middle Ages.
