Powderham Castle antics!

Today Year 2 were lucky enough to kick start our new learning about "Towers, Tunnels and Turrets" with a fantastic visit to Powderham Castle in Exteter. 

The children (and adults!) had a brilliant time touring the castle and learning all about the Earl of Devon and the family history. We walked through each room in the castle, taking note of all the paintings, furniture, stair cases and lights. The rooms had "secret doors" which the children were keen to spot. Some were so cleverly disguised that we struggled to find them! 

We took in the view of the back of the castle, some parts being over 400 years old. The deer park was beautiful too. The guides commented on what super questioning skills the children had; some stumped the guides as they did not know all the answers! 

The children really shone today and showcased their enquiring minds. Well done to all. 

Thank you also to the adults who supported our children today.
