Year 4 have had a great time sewing, making Tudor cushions. We took inspiration from the activities that the Ladies-in-waiting would have completed in King Henry's Court.
Year 4 had fun dyeing materials like Tudor's we used boiled vegetables to dye them.
We have had a dentist into visit us during the term they came and taught us about keeping our teeth healthy and the importance of looking after our gums. Children were very excited and asked lots of questions.
To finish our Tudor topic, year 4 hosted a banquet. The children cooked their own food and shared disgusting Tudor manners with their parents. There were activities that the children led their parents. It was lots of fun!
