The Tudors


On Tuesday, Year 4 were transported back to Tudor times as they participated in a  Tudor Day workshop. The girls came to school dressed in Tudor costume and were welcomed to the manor house of Lady Elizabeth in the year 1536. They were trained as apprentices in a number of skills including locket making, leather work and embroidery, as well as how to be an Apothecary and Barber Surgeon. 

During the afternoon, the girls feasted on a Tudor banquet where the entertainment was provided by jesters, jugglers, singers, dancers and actors. 

Many thanks to all the parents who were able to help on the day and for the wonderful costumes that the girls so enjoyed wearing.
