Welcome to Athelstan Community Primary School

Today we visited Skipton Castle as part of our castles and dragons topic. It was a long journey but when we arrived we got to see the beautiful castle and its surroundings. Each class had a guided tour around the castle. We learnt about each room and what it would have been used for when the castle was first built. We visited the dungeon and got to see what life would have been like as a prisoner in the castle. The guide turned the light off and everybody screamed! The day was packed full of facts and after lunch we had an activity booklet to complete based on what we had learnt. The favourite part of most children's day was seeing the garderobe (medieval toilet). It was lots of fun!
