Class 2007-2013 on October 17th 2011

We were amazed when we saw the real painting of 'Robin Hood and his Merry Men' on display in Nottingham Castle - it was so much bigger than we had expected. We all found it easier to see the characters in detail in the painting than in the postcards and pictures we had been looked at before. We were able to answer lots of questions about the painting because we had been researching it at school with Miss Hitch. We also had the chance to hold some real chain mail (like that worn by King Richard) - it was really heavy and must have been extremely uncomfortable to wear all day!
