Class 5 trip To Buckingham Gaol

On Wednesday 1st May, the children in class 5 (Reception) went on a trip to Buckingham Old Gaol, in support of their topic, Buildings.

.On arrival the children were met by their guide, who was dressed in character as the old jailer. He talked to the children about the building and what it was like to be a prisoner in the jail.

The children looked around the museum, including the jail cells and looked at artefacts from Medieval and Victorian times.

The children (and the staff) had great fun dressing up as prisoners and sitting in the stocks.

They enjoyed a picnic lunch, before taking a short walk around Buckingham to look at the different buildings in the town, including Tudor.
