Lewes Castle was the destination for children in Years 1 and 2 from Castlewood Primary School in Southwater recently when they took a day out of school to explore this historical landmark.

The pupils had discovered a huge egg which they thought might belong to a dragon and so went on a quest to find him at Lewes Castle.

As part of their visit the children looked around the museum at the artefacts, explored the Castle buildings and dressed up in medieval clothing.

Vicky Dedman, Key Stage 1 Leader, said: “We had a fantastic trip which really gave the children a variety of experiences to draw on when we return to school. This type of hands on learning is such an inspiration for them. Sadly, we still haven’t found the owner of the egg!”
