Year 5 trip to Castle Hill – Wednesday 8th January
To launch our myths and legends topics, Year 5 went on a trip to Castle Hill in Huddersfield to further explore the myth: The Hydra of Huddersfield. Whilst there, we also saw the location of the Iron Age Hillfort which we compared to our own hillforts which we have devised earlier in the year. We explored Victoria’s tower as well as hearing about the myth of the dragon of Castle Hill. Finally, we acted out the story of the Hydra of Huddersfield around the ancient well which rumour has it is, is where the hydra’s lair was.
