Primary school children

For primary school children we propose a play­based visit to the castle and the surrounding forest ­

« The Castle of Challenges ». The circuit is an innovative way of learning about a historic building with the opportunity to live a three hour adventure in another era.

It mixes the real and the imaginary in life scale settings and takes the participants on a joint quest : to find the treasure and rebuild the castle. The twenty play stations require transferable skills such as powers of observation, logic, mathematics, skill, agility, determination…

The historical information panels are there to convey the basics facts about the Middle Ages. The visit is therefore educational and fun and becomes a remarkable joint experience that unites the class.

Duration : 3h (break for lunch or tea is possible)
Languages : French, German, English (the three languages are at an equal level in both written and spoken form)
Availability : Every day from 24 March until 4 November 2018
Reservation : required on 0033 (0)388 94 28 52 or click on the booking form
Available for you on site : covered picnic areas – also possible a meal in the café (set menu 6€ per person)

What happens ?

The children cover the circuit in small groups of 8 to 12 with their own accompanying teachers.

At the beginning the organiser explains to the adults what their rôle is : channel the participants, encourage group thinking and noting reactions on a form that is provided on arrival.

The organiser then tells the children about the circuit and tackles the first challenge with them in the courtyard of the P’tit Fleck. After that you are off on the circuit. Once the Gap in Time and the way into the Middle Ages has been discovered, you are faced with 19 other challenges, which enable ghost knight Hugo to rebuild his castle and return to his former life in the castle.

Our organiser will be there at the end to check your replies at the information terminals and to immortalise the occasion by getting the class together for a souvenir photo.

N.B. For groups the first challenge takes place in the courtyard of the P’tit Fleck not inside in the Sandstone and Forest area.
