Year 3 Go Back In Time

On Monday 15 June, Year 3 visited Sulgrave Manor; a superb example of a modest manor house of Shakespeare’s time; home to the ancestors of George Washington.

On arrival, the children were given the opportunity to dress in Tudor clothing and each had an authentic packed lunch to add to the excitement of the day. They were also able to walk in the Great Hall, Kitchen and Bedchamber amongst the furniture and artefacts of the period, seeing the rooms as they would have looked in the time of Lawrence Washington who bought the estate from Henry V111 in 1539. 

The children acted out the story of the Tudor Kings and Queens and even partook in a Tudor dance!
