Year 1 visit to Sudeley Castle

Year 1 visit to Sudeley Castle

On Tuesday all of Year 1 went to Sudeley Castle. We all went on a massive, big coach! First we saw some wooden elephants. Next we explored the banqueting hall. After that we walked to the very old church and we saw Elizabeth's step mum, Katherine Parr in a white grave. My favourite part was exploring the garden because we found lots of animals.’

‘We went on a comfy coach to Sudeley Castle and it was lots of fun. Year 1 went to learn about Queen Elizabeth the First. First we went to see the grounds of the castle and we saw some elephants but they were wood. Next we went to the church to look at Katherine Parr's grave. After that we went to a really fun play ground that had a castle and a zip line. Then we saw some birds and a peacock which was fun. Next we went to have some yummy lunch.

After that we went to see Henry the Eighth and his six wives. Then we went to the knot garden and we met Queen Elizabeth. My favourite bit was when we saw the Queen's toilet because it looks really comfy.’
