On Tuesday morning classes 3JK and 3RB set off with great excitement on our trip to Clitheroe Castle.
Whilst at the castle we learnt and made many new things like:
- How to salute to dragons using swords
- How to make a motte and bailey out of sand
- We discovered more interesting facts about the history of castles
- We made armour for Sir Eggbert (can you guess what he was?)
- We Listened to a fantastic story about the myth of the Clitheroe Castle dragon
We thoroughly enjoyed out visit and can not wait to share our favorite parts tomorrow!

Today we welcomed the Year 3 children from Tonge Moor to Pikes Lane. We completed team building games and painted in the style of Quentin Blake.
In the afternoon we completed orienteering and computing work. We worked together to add comments about our day to the blog.

Boudicca’s temporary roundhouse,
Rwy'n ysgrifennu atoch i ...oops sorry, I forgot you do not speak my native Celt language.
As you know things have been tough for us here in Brittania since the Romans came. We have fought hard; day after day, night after night through towns and villages and open fields. Yet still they come.
St Albans and London have been destroyed, my army burnt the cities down and we killed many Romans. Sadly, my warriors have been beaten and I had to flee the battle. I had ten times more warriors than the Romans, but they were better trained than we were.
The battle has been lost the Romans will take my land and my people will be enslaved. I shall be humiliated. I am a Celtic Queen and some say I should not suffer the humiliation. They say that I should take poison as the land of Iceni now belongs to Rome.
Not a chance!
I need to move and I’m thinking Rome because it must be sunny as all those Romans were nicely tanned! I need you to research and present to me information about Roman homes to help me choose.
All the best,
P.S. Please don’t tell Legion IX my address!
Who can remember the names of our Reading Detectives and the jobs they do? Let's see if we can get them all by the end of the week.
Remember to check your spelling and punctuation.
