Wow! A Tudor Courtier visits Year 4
As a start to our new topic today, we were extremely excited to meet a Tudor Courtier who told us all about the life of King Henry VIII. We took part in a traditional Tudor dance and even had a go at jousting (a favourite past time of Henry’s) with foam jousting sticks. Several people had to be beheaded but fortunately we didn’t use the real axe!
The children thoroughly enjoyed this interactive drama session and recalled so much about Tudor times after just an hour of learning where they were immersed into what life would have been like as a royal Tudor.
