On the 25th April the Year 7s enjoyed a blustery yet atmospheric day out at Warkworth Castle. The purpose of the visit was to think critically about the value of educational visits and to assess the true value and worth, for a historian, in visiting a ruin such as Warkworth. We learned a great deal about the structure and purpose of Warkworth and picked up lots of specialist vocabulary along the way. This was a very hands-on day and the pupils took the lead and found a great deal out for themselves by acting as critical explorers.
