We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the Royal Shakespeare Theatre to see the musical adaptation of The Boy in the Dress with the rest of KS2. David Walliam’s book was truly brought to life!
Visit to Hampton Court
On 18th November we left school early with year 5 to visit the ultimate Tudor venue, Hampton Court Palace. We spent the day exploring the palace, learning more about the challenges Henry VIII faced to secure his throne, and took part in a drama workshop to explore his earlier life. Our research on life in Tudor times this term enabled us to bring it all to life. Standing in the Great Hall,we imagined the banquets that Henry hosted, and the opportunities for paupers to take left over food from the table.

After studying the features on non-standard English, Year 6 wrote some dialogue between William Shakespeare and Ma Trowte (a character from their class text “A Road to London”). They then performed their scripts for the class. The contrast between Shakespeare’s standard English and Ma Trowte’s non-standard English was very entertaining.

Tudor WOW Day
We had a fun filled WOW day preparing for a Tudor Feast. On the menu was a variety of food including jumble biscuits, where the pastry was boiled before being baked in the oven. We also made meatballs, honey cake and a potage soup using lovage from our school herb garden.

We worked on computers in pairs in our new Hub to research the daily life of Tudor children (rich and poor). We created a Sway presentation to include our information.

Our week at PGL at Boreatton Park was certainly one to remember! We overcame our fears, attempted new challenges (some involving heights! ) and worked together to solve problems.
