Year 5 Tudor Interactive Play

Year 5 travelled back in time to the Tudor period with our ‘Steps In Time’ interactive play, last Friday. The children had a wonderful time learning about the different Kings and Queens and what life was like in Tudor times. We met Henry the VII, Henry VIII and his six wives, Queen Elizabeth I and Sir Francis Drake. We also enjoyed some Tudor dancing and learnt about the Spanish Armada and what life was like on a tudor ship.
