Year 2 Visit To Pendennis Castle
We would like to say a big thank you to the Cornwall Heritage Trust
for providing a grant to cover the cost of transportation for this trip.
Our guide for the morning was Deb. She told us the story of King Henry the Eighth and his first wife Catherine of Aragon, including Anne Boleyn, the King of Spain and the King of France. We dressed up and acted it out. Then we pretended to be soldiers in the castles at St Mawes and Pendennis defending Falmouth from the French and Spanish.
Finally, after lunch we explored the castle from top to bottom and walked down the tunnels to the Half Moon Battery.
We have to thank all the friendly and helpful staff at Pendennis Castle who made us feel very welcome and made it an amazing day.
