Year 6 York trip day 4

Today we have visited the York Castle Museum. This museum is based in the old prison which once held the famous highwayman Dick Turpin; the children took part in two workshops. One of these was about World War 1 and links to the topic work we will be doing back at school. The children learnt about why World War 1 started and what conditions were like for the soldiers in France and the people who were left at home in England. The other workshop was set in Victorian times and focused on crime and punishment; the children were given the opportunity to decide the fate of a man accused of stealing from a shop. We will leave it to them to explain whether they found him guilty or not guilty. Our afternoon concluded with a walk of the city walls back to the hotel. This was lovely in the late afternoon sunshine and gave some spectacular views of the Minster. The children are currently enjoying their dinner before returning to the centre of the city for Tales of York this evening.
