I went to Rockingham Castle. When we got there we had some lunch, then we went to the house and we went on an i spy trail. The house was very nice. We went to soldier room then we watched a film about it. Then we saw the kitchen, the panel room and the gallery which had paintings of children in it. Boys, when they were little, dressed like girls. There were ghosts in the pictures which were really statues. And we went to the great hall; i got to try on a real helmet and glove that they used in battle.The helmet was really heavy. Then we went to the shops and Mummy bought Amelie a bow and arrow, Josie a pig and i had a sword and shield; we played outside the castle with them. Josie got a bit upset because she wanted a sword and shield like me.

We went to the car to get a snack and put our toys away. and then we went to the gardens and did a Treasure Hunt to find out who stole the Griffin’s Gold. We had a choice of three kings, William the Conqueror, King Richard I and Bad King John. It was Bad King John who stole the gold. Then we went back to the shop and showed her our answer.¬† We were right; Bad king John stole the gold so the lady at the counter gave us each a badge.

Then we went back to the car and toys out again and went to the picnic area and played until  we went home.
