Our Day In Bamburgh by Luke N

Bamburgh Castle  

Guess what we did today? Well it all started when we jumped onto the coach and headed to Bamburgh Castle. I was wondering what Bamburgh Castle looked like inside, I didn’t know but I couldn’t wait to find out. Arriving at the castle I could smell the salty air blowing from the sea. Walking inside I could see some amazing things such as a spear and shield, a replica of the castle itself and some other great things as well. After the lady told us about the things in the room, such as the fireplace and suits of armour, we split up into groups and looked around the castle.  Looking around the rooms, we finally reached the armour and weapon room.  Inside the room there were guns, crossbows, spears, helmets and lots more armour and weaponry. So far that room is my favourite one. After looking round the gift shop we went into the dungeons. We saw what would really happen to people if there were  people in the dungeons, it was dark, damp and very scary, we felt sorry for the prisoners who were tortured in those days. After that we walked back to the hotel for dinner.  

Bamburgh Beach
After dinner we walked to the beach for our sand castle competition. We split up into teams and then got to work, our task was to build our castle with some of the features we had seen at Bamburgh and Lindisfarne, so we included a wall around the keep, we added a moat, arrow slits and battlements.
It was a great day – I enjoyed making the moat because we filled with water and it worked!

  1. Wow what a fantastic poem Mr Taylor and thank you to all the parents who followed our journey. I had an amazing time and I hope the children did too. Thank you for all your support and wonderful comments. Looking forward to seeing you all on Monday Mrs Greenwood

  2. Luke's Dad what a fantastic poem and all so true I cried when Charlotte got on the bus and came back, the blog was a life line and I am sure that I was not the only parent constantly checking it – Mum and Dad have had our cuddles and it has cost us a trip to Pizza Hut with Thresea David and Elizabeth Miall. Charlotte said she had a fantastic time and we would all like to thank all the teachers for all their hard work – when I speak to parents of other schools their children do not get anywhere near what our children get. A big thank you again. Allison, Darren and Charlotte Potts
