Trip to Culzean Castle

19/6/18         Our Trip to Culzean Castle

On the 18th of June the whole school went to Culzean Castle for our school trip.

P1-4 headed off to explore the beautiful castle. They saw lots of really interesting things in there – including a bell to ring for a servant! We don’t have things like that nowadays! They then enjoyed some fun at the playpark.

P5-7 worked on two workshops; Materials from our Earth and Using Maps. They spotted and chatted about man made materials and natural materials. Then they headed down to the beach to search for sandstone, volcanic rock, driftwood, feathers and limpet shells. In the map workshop, they learnt how to position a map the correct way and set a compass. They used their maps to navigate their way to the castle and back to the Home Farm and also created a felt map. After a busy day it was time to get the bus back to school! What a grand day out!
