Warwick Castle Inspires Prep Girls
Pre-Prep girls enjoyed a trip to Warwick Castle in support of their Spring Term topic ‘Traditional Tales’. Their visit began with a storyteller in the Princess Tower followed by a ‘Meet the Monarchy’ talk in the Great Hall, where they learned about the life of King Henry VIII. After lunch, girls were fascinated by a birds of prey demonstration. A ‘Stories and Shields’ workshop was a great opportunity for our budding artists to design shields, which they were able to paint at School the following day. Finally, everyone was able to explore the castle – even venturing into the most haunted room!
Sophie Earp said "On Thursday we went to Warwick Castle. We got on the bus and went. When we got to Warwick Castle it was the most beautiful castle ever. It was awesome and we got told a story by a storyteller and she was a musician, an amazing one too. Then we went to the Great Hall to be told about Kings and Queens. We learnt about Henry VIII and we saw armour, guns and swords. Then we went to see the wax works and then we went to the Bear Tower and there was a gigantic paw print on the wall. Then we went up a very tall tower and it was extremely windy! Then we went to see a princess and we made shields. It was an amazing trip."
