19 years ago, there were 10 days of heavy rainfall. Raining and raining and raining without stopping for a rest. One morning, all the local residents of Far Cotton woke up to the swirl of water invading their innocent homes, and destroying anything that comes in its way! All their food was destroyed but luckily the local supermarkets such as Tesco were prepared. They had loaded lots and lots of food into gigantic lorries which were driven to the top of a hill for people with no food. Police knocked on everyone’s doors to make sure that nobody was left out.
On Wednesday the 22nd of March 2017 Year 5 went to Nottingham Castle to learn more about Robin Hood. Firstly, we entered a dark hole which is also known as Mortimer’s hole and we followed a the tunnel where Robin hood crept and rescued Maid Marian. Then we ended up in the sheriff’s deadly wine cellar. After that, we entered the exhibition for 30 minutes and we searched for answers that were on the walls on big pieces of paper. Next, we had our tasty refreshing lunch and after we that we went to a drama room where some people acted as Robin Hood, Friar Tuck, Maid Marian and many more. After that, we got to hold some ancient pottery and tried some armour on. I tried on the extreme heavy chain mail . Sadly, we had to leave Nottingham Castle but apart from that I had a wonderful time. My favorite part was when we met Friar Tuck and entered Mortimer’s hole.
