YEAR 5B 

WEDNESDAY 23rd MAY 2018 During our trip to Hoghton Tower, the children experienced life from 450 years ago.  They followed in the footsteps of King James I and enjoyed hearing tales about the Sir-Loin, dressing for the role, touring the underground passageways, hunting for undiscovered stonemasons' marks, peering down a well, searching for a parrot in a cage and imagining life as it was in the stately rooms.  A great time was had by all, including lunch in the sunshine on the front lawn.  We left with lots of questions and memorable experiences from our day - including the 'knighting' of some children!  Photographs of the day can be found below.  Further details about Hoghton Tower can be found at www.hoghtontower.co.uk .
