Year Two Visit to Hampton Court
Year 2 Seuss had a fantastic time at Hampton Court Palace on Thursday 27th February, despite the snowy start. We all saw the great hall where Henry VIII hosted banquets and balls. We walked through the kitchens seeing what food the Tudor courts would have eaten. We watched the interactive chopping boards show us how to prepare the food and how they cooked the meat on the fire. Some pupils had a tour with Katherine Parr's sister and others handled 500 year old coins used when the Tudors were kings and queens. The day helped us all in our history learning about the monarchy through the ages and comparing different periods of time.
