P4B Edinburgh Castle Trip

Primary 4b’s visit to Edinburgh Castle

On Wednesday 31st October, our class visited Edinburgh castle. We were very excited before we got there, especially as it was Hallowe’en. We thought that we would perhaps see the ghost of the piper who walks around the castle or some spooky people. This also made us a little bit nervous and scared!

We visited the castle as part of our topic about historical Scottish dwellings.

Before we went into the castle we had a look at the esplanade and we saw lots of people visiting the castle. The castle was very high on an extinct volcano.

We then had a workshop. Blair was dressed up as a knight. Then we all got to hold some of the armour. The sword was long and sharp. It was important to be really careful when we held the sword.

After lunch we had lots of time to go around the castle. First of all we heard the one-o’clock gun and then we all went to different parts of the castle in our groups.

Some of the best a bits were

  • Having a pretend shower in the prison
  • Going to the dungeons, and prisoner of war exhibition
  • Some of the things we saw were a bit scary and interesting
  • The crown jewels
  • The one o’clock gun
  • Seeing where James 1 was born
  • Putting the armour on
  • The great hall

This was a great trip. We all enjoyed it and would like to go back again.
