What a magnificent day out! We were blessed with perfect weather for our trip to Skipton Castle - warm and sunny - and our castle tour did not disappoint either! Dark dank dungeons, vertiginous toilets and fireplaces the whole class could fit into were some of the highlights. Lunch on the lawn followed by some r and r and some super sketching in the castle grounds rounded off a fabulous day. Many thanks to Anthony and Kathleen, our guides at Skipton Castle and to all our staff members and volunteer helpers. Huge huge thanks also to our superb Year 1 children, whose enthusiasm throughout was boundless and who were an absolute pleasure to be with.
