We made awesome Venetian masks.



What a fantastic week we have had!  We have been learning about Tudor life from a letter from Richard Seymour, solving Mathematical problems regarding Jousting, Archery and the King's jewels, making portraits using Green screen technology, making Tudor head dresses, making Tudor houses AND cooking Tudor food!

Today (Friday) we have had a visit from King Henry VIII himself.  We listened to his tales, asked him questions, took part in a jousting tournament and held a Tudor banquet.  Please enjoy the photos of our fun.

Trip to Cardiff Castle
