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.
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!
