Clitheroe Castle Visit

At the end of December Class Three made a visit to Clitheroe Castle, it was an amazing day out.

The children learnt a lot about castles and battles whilst they were there. As part of the day, all the children had eggs which had to be protected at all costs! They had to create armour for their eggs in preparation for battle and then had a competition to throw them off the castle’s keep. The eggs had to remain intact to be in with a chance of winning. Thankfully they were hardboiled seeing as both Miss Taylor and Miss Bishop had to be at the bottom of the castle to check them! 

The children also re-enacted the battles of 1066 complete with shields and actions. They were also shown swords and shields that would have been used by the different armies in 1066. Lola was able to try on a helmet and Joshua got to try on the chain mail – being fully dressed as a soldier. Until he put it on, he had no idea how heavy it was!

Following Boris Johnson’s 8pm announcement we now know that as of midnight tonight the country has entered a new period of Lockdown, a Lockdown that includes the closure of school. 

School will be open for the children of Key Workers and for pupils who are deemed vulnerable. All pupils will be provided with work in order for them to keep learning. 

Tonight’s announcement was very short notice for you as parents and also for us as a Staff. Tomorrow, by 11am there will be three tasks on the school website for each Class to complete as their Tuesday learning. However, School will be closed to ALL pupils tomorrow. 


Staff, however, will be in school preparing for the rest of the Lockdown. Through tomorrow we will prepare school to make it safe for Key worker pupils and vulnerable children to return. 

We will send out a form for you to apply for a place in the Keyworker Bubbles and we will let you know more about how children will be learning remotely. We will do our very best to re-open to Key Worker children and vulnerable pupils by Wednesday. 

I am aware of how difficult this is for you all, School closing creates a multitude of problems for everyone but data surrounding this awful disease dictates that this is a necessary step. As ever, the safety and health of everyone must be a priority. 

Thank you for your continued support and we will be in frequent contact over the next few days. 

Many thanks
