Year 5 at Temple Newsam House twice!!

Year 5 had two fantastic trips to Temple Newsam House last half term.  The first one, straight after Christmas, was to help us get stuck into our new topic Leeds, Leeds, Leeds! We learnt about the fascinating history of the house, looked at various artefacts and even tried to solve the murder mystery -  who killed Lord Darnley?

On our second visit, there were even more opportunities to dress up!  This time our focus was ghost stories, to inspire some brilliant writing back in school.  We went in the underground passageways and acted out two stories:  One about Phoebe Grey and the other about the  Blue Lady!  Nikki even gave us a little extra, due to our excellent behaviour:  a chance to dress up and do some Tudor dancing!
