On Wednesday 17th January 2024, Rowan class went to Hampton Court Palace to learn about Tudor Britain. We found out so much about Henry VIII and his 6 wives!
We had an amazing time exploring the palace, dressing up in Tudor costumes, feeling replicas from the time; including fur and feathers! We then went on to explore the kitchens. Here we crushed herbs, learnt about medicines and foods, as well what jobs people did in the palace.
We then had a wonderful time in the maze- luckily, we all made it out…eventually.
Of course we visited the gift shop. Many thanks to the Friends of Mountjoy, who kindly donated £5 per student, for them to take home a memento of the day.
We were very lucky to have a beautiful coach take us and bring us back. All the students were exemplary offsite and we are very much looking forward to more trips like this!
A special thanks to the Access Fund for covering all costs of travel and ticket entrance to support learning outside of the classroom.
