Lessons in Tudor history

FROM the fate of the six wives of Henry VIII to making warrants of passage – youngsters at St Peter’s RC Primary School learned all about Tudor times.

The seven to nine year olds also did brass rubbings, made pomanders of oranges and cloves, acted out plays, learned to write with ink and quills and dressed in appropriate costumes – with the help of Glynis Hughes, of Vitae Lampadae.

“Learning about the dissolution of the monasteries and conflict between Protestants and Catholics during these times was also appropriate for our school,” said Year 4 teacher David Lockwood.

The Tudor visit was part of the pupils’ on-going history topic.
