A day as a Tudor
STAFF and children at a Portishead school experienced a day in the life of the Tudors as part of their class topic.
Year four pupils at St Joseph’s Primary School in Bristol Road dressed either as a rich or poor Tudor and began the day by writing the Lord’s prayer using a quill and ink.
The 31 children also made horn books and smelling pomanders. They also tried out Tudor dancing and decorated their goblets reading for a banquet lunch.
After lunch, the children created shields for battle and also made Tudor jewellery. To finish the day they played traditional games including skittles, hoops and marbles.
Teacher Samantha Sherlock said: “The children really enjoyed the Tudor dancing as it was something different and encouraged children to participate in an activity outside their comfort zones.
