Year 3 Visit to Castle Keep

Year 3 Visit to Castle Keep


Dear Parents/ Carers,

As part of our creative curriculum topic on Crime and Punishment, Year 3 will be visiting the Castle Keep to take part in a ‘The Story of Newcastle’ workshop. Each class will be going on a different date:


Y3FB – Friday 4th February

Y3S – Friday 11th February  


During the workshop, the pupils will learn about the history of their local area, and the development of Newcastle from Roman fort to medieval town and industrial city. The workshop also includes using artefact handling and drama to look at the story of a city over 1900 years of history.


We will be leaving school at 9:30am and will return to school at 12:15pm. Children must wear their school uniform not their PE kit. Lunch will be at school as usual. Please note there will be no cost for this trip as school will be subsidising it.


If you have any questions or queries, please do not hesitate to contact either Mrs Bone, Mrs Fellows or Mrs Stubbs via email.


Yours sincerely,

Mrs Bone, Mrs Fellows and Mrs Stubbs
