Immersion week


This week we immersed ourselves in various activities related to our new topic 'Off with their heads!' Tudor children would have used a hornbook to learn to read and one of our activities included making our own version of this.

We created a family tree for the Tudor family starting with Henry Tudor and Elizabeth of York. We tried out some Tudor dancing alongside traditional music, made Tudor inspired jewellery and even baked some Bosworth Jumble biscuits which tasted amazing unfortunately I burnt half of them (sorry). Please take some time to look at some photos of our week.
