Dear diary,

Today we visited Caldicot Castle. It was fantastic! We met a knight at the castle. He was very funny and told us lots of interesting stories about the castle. He even told us that the castle has a ghost. It's a woman who lived here more than 500 years ago. He said you can hear her singing sometimes. Scary!

The best part for me was in the kitchen. I love cooking so it was really interesting to find out what people ate. I don't think I would like to go back to those days - they didn't have any chocolate then - and that's my favourite food!

In school I sometimes think our History classes are a bit boring, but this was different. I'm going to work harder at school now. That's going tosurprise Mr Yeates!
