Hurst Castle

Key Stage 1 have been learning all about Dragons and Castles!

On the 19th June 2015, we took a very exciting trip to our very own Hurst Castle. We travelled together on two ferries and spent the day looking at the features of the castle and learning all about its Tudor history.

The children had 3 activities throughout the day:


  • A tour and fact page to answer
  • An I-Spy sheet to find the different parts of the castle
  • Sketching and collecting the surrounding landscape

The children had a fantastic time and learnt so much about this local piece of history.
