Year 7 - Warwick Castle - Reminder
5 June 2019
At this moment in time, pupils in Year 7 are looking at castles throughout the medieval period and their impact on the people that lived in and around them. Currently, pupils are working towards completing a research project on a castle of their choice. In order to support this program of study, the History department have organised a trip to Warwick Castle on 5 June 2019. This is a fantastic opportunity to visit a local attraction that will help all pupils understand the significance of the structure and its impact upon life in medieval England.
The intended areas of study are:
- The structure of the castle and how it was an effective defensive fortress;
- Life in Warwick Castle and how it can help us learn about life if medieval England;
- The role of Warwick Castle in the Wars of the Roses and its relevance to the story of King Richard III.
All Year 7 pupils are expected to go on the trip to the castle as it is a central part of the study of history this academic year. The cost of the trip will be £20 per pupil, which covers transport, admission and guided tours/activities. The coach will leave Princethorpe College at 8.45am and return for 3.45pm. An electronic consent form will be sent by email and the £20 cost will be added to the Trinity term bill.
