  12. When we went to Clitheroe Castle first we went in the keep it had no roof because a dragon broke it with fire. Me and Mackey-Lou loved making armour for the eggs, throwing them as well because they were so fun. Next we made motte and baily sand castles they were 8 shaped moat ,a well ,butchers,bakers and a palisade fence. Then we learnt the salute with swords we did to the nose to the sky to the floor 3 times because dragons can only count to 3 and in school there’s only year 1 2 and 3 so that’s why we do it 3 times and not 1 2 4 times.

  13. On the 23rd of January in the morning 2Y, 2G, the teachers and some mums travelled to Clitheroe Castle by coach. It was a very long journey lasting for an hour.
    First we made a Bailey out of sand.Next we went to the Victorian kitchen where we made egg armour . When we had done that we went to the look out to see if it was strong enough but Isaac was very lucky because he had been the winner! Next, we went outside and learned that a long time ago the Normans didn’t make castles from stone the Normans made it from wood but they have became very clever and made castles out of stone and that was when we went up to the dungeon and the dungeon was as dark as the night time sky.Next we had lunch, my lunch was tuna sandwichs ,a bottle of water and a pack of raisons .After lunch, it was time for a story about a green dragon,a red dragon , a black dragon ,a blue dragon and a white dragon. After the long story we had another story about a very brave boy called Bar, we got a foam sword and practised how to prove that you are a very good friend to a dragon by saying “ to the nose to the sky to the floor”.

    Finally,we went back to where we had the long story about the dragons and a certificate was given to Isaac.Then it was time to go home so we got back onto the coach.Daniel had brought some treats to eat on the way home.Thankyou for the day out Miss Simpson. Where are we going next?

  14. On January the 23rd, year 2Y and 2G had an a amazing time at Clitheroe Castle. First we made eggs made out of armour, the second thing we all did was to throw our eggs down a really, really big hill and we all wanted to see whose did not crack. The second thing was to practise our sword skills, if you are in a battle with dragons, you can shout “to the nose, to the sky, to the floor.” We all had a really amazing time at Clitheroe Castle and it was a brilliant day inside Clitheroe Castle too. On our next trip please can we all go to see the animals at Chester zoo?

  15. First we got on the coach from school to Clitheroe Castle.On the way I sat with my friend Alfie and we pretended to drive the coach. We came to a narrow bridge and we thought the coach was too big for it, but somehow it went through. When we got to Clitheroe Castle we made armour for an egg to protect it like armour protected the knights. We all dropped our eggs from the castle keep to see if they would break. Mine only cracked, but afterwards I accidentally broke it in two. We also learnt how to hold a sword like a knight. I got a certificate for helping to demonstrate things. We all had a jolly good time!!

  16. First we went on the coach when we got of the coach we went in to our groups whith 2y. I was in miss Simpson group whith my mum then our group went into the room with art and crafts we made egg armour with different materials.

  17. I loved our trip to clitheroe castle. First of all we we made egg armour to protect our eggs from a daingerous fall. I chose to use cardboard from egg boxes because egg boxes usually protect eggs from cracking. I though it was fun throwing our eggs. next we had a look around the keep it was freezing cold as an iceberg and the building was tall and as dark as the night skies. Then we made our own mot and bailey sand castle which was messy and fun. After lunch we became members of s.w.o.r.d we learnt three things first we learnt how to be friendly to dragons. You must use your sword and point and say “to the nose to the sky to the floor” three times. Our second lesson was about the different types of dragons. Our final lesson was about the story of clithero castle. This was my favorite part of the trip because it was entertaining and john Christmas was really funny. He made us woo like a baby gohst! And Howell like a wolf.

    I liked our trip very much I wonder what we will do I’m our next adventure?

  18. Dragons are real because of the secret code it’s to the noce to the sky to the floor but three times. The Blue Dragon swears.

  19. Green dragons love to hide in trees but… some times they make a stinky smell . Red dragons breef fire and they are the scary is one in the wold . Blue dragons spit and siwa and they do it a lot . White dragons hide in the clowds and in the snow because they are white .

  20. 2Y and 2G went to Clitheroe castle. First of all we talked about the rules and then we set off to the coach it took an hour to get there. When we arrived we met some people, Harvey’s mums group went to do some egg armour to protect the eggs from cracking when we through them over a cliff. We saw where they landed, mine landed in some bushes.

    Next we heard some stories abought Dragons, there was a red dragon, white dragon and a green dragon. Then we heard another story abought Baa, who was a little boy that was very brave when he went into the castle that was as dark as a cave. Inside the castle Baa had a fight with a dragon and he axidently stabbed it in the bottom !!

    Finally we said goodbye but there was one thing left and that was the winner of the egg competition it was Isaac.

    We got on the coach and went back to school. I thought it was the most awesome day ever.

    Where are we going next?
