HUNGRY children from Nailsea tucked into a Tudor banquet to celebrate life in the 16th century.

Pupils at Golden Valley Primary School painted their own self-portraits and hung them on the walls. They also embroidered their waistcoats, made ruffs and baked bread rolls ready for the feast. To keep themselves entertained they had a go at Tudor dancing, tried jousting and made up riddles and songs.

To complete the topic, the students tucked into a banquet of chicken legs, bread, fruit and a boar’s head cake.
