Goodrich Castle and the Warwickshire Bowman

Pupils from Goodrich Primary School were given an exciting tour of their local castle on Friday by Kevin Hicks, The Warwickshire Bowman.

During the visit, the children were taken step by step around the historic fortress and told in graphic detail about everyday life in the middle ages and how the castle was defended.

The children were shown into the dungeon and told how horrible being incarcerated there would have been. The braver of the children climbed to the top of the Tower. Warwickshire Bowman played them some tunes on his recorder, showed them some artefacts and finally gave a demonstration of his archery skills, in the castle's moat.

Creative Art Afternoon at Gorsley Goffs

Pupils at Gorsley Goffs Primary School enjoyed a Creative Art Activity Afternoon on Monday which was inspired by the artists Richard Long and Andy Goldsworthy.

Children split into four groups and went out into the school grounds, where they tried their hand at making sculptures out of natural materials, taking photographs and sketching. Parents spent the afternoon helping out and at the same time gained extra quality time with their children.

The idea of the afternoon was for children to express their creativity in response to the environment, inspired by the artists they have studied.

Parent, Nicola Collard, assisted Jenny, Amy and Kieran with their sketching by showing them how to frame their subject.
