Year 2 have been learning about the Tudors and Henry VIII. Recently, children from Cypress and Beulah had the opportunity to visit a Tudor Palace – Hampton Court. After hearing that Hampton Court was Henry’s favourite palace, the children were very excited to walk around and see where Henry would have lived. They walked through Henry’s soot stained kitchens and were astonished at how many pies were eaten in Tudor times. They wandered through Jane Seymour’s apartments and were very interested in the Tudor games that were on show. In the great hall, children marvelled at the detail of the stained glass and the wall paintings. After a brief lunch, the children had a workshop with Tudor artefacts and learnt a Tudor dance. Year 2 would like to thank all the parents who accompanied us on this trip.
