Phase 3/4 at Blakesley Hall

21 and 29 November 2012

Pupils in Phase 3/4 had a fabulous day out at Blakesley Hall, which provided the children with a great opportunity to see a Tudor House to support their Topic Work.

Pupils took part in a range of activities and a guided walk around the house, which was own by Richard Smallbroke and his family. The house was built over 422 years ago.

The children had the opportunity to find out what life was like to live in Yardley during Tudor times. The difference between the daily routine and lifestyle of a rich Tudor and a poor Tudor. We also danced a Tudor dance in the long gallery.

After lunch, the children completed a range of activities including quill writing, brass rubbing and completing more research using primary and secondary sources, which included a walk around the herb and vegetable garden identifying different herbs and their uses in Tudor time.

A very worthwhile and enjoyable day out.
