Year 7 had a wonderful time visiting Tamworth Castle. They enjoyed exploring, starting in the Great Hall and armoury. They even got to hold replica items of armoury and feel just how heavy a helmet with chain mail was. Some of the Staffordshire Hoard was on display, and we were wowed by learning that the value of the whole hoard, found in a field by a metal detectorist, was over 3 million pounds!. As it was such a beautiful day the learners enjoyed running off a bit of energy in the park outside the castle afterwards and some got to practice their independence skills by buying themselves an ice-cream in the park café.
