Event - Year 1 trip to Blakesley Hall

17 October 2007

Year 1 went on a trip to Blakesley Hall in Birmingham to study the Tudors. The children had a great time finding out what life was like in Tudor times for both rich and poor people.

Blakesley Hall was a great example of what life was like in Tudor times for a rich person. Some of the children even got the chance to dress up as Tudor people and act out different Tudor character roles.
