Tudor Day

tudorday2 tudorday3 tudorday4

On Wednesday 14th january 2015 we had a tudor day which involved tudor related activities and  opportunities to dress up in tudor costumes . My (Finlay) personal favorite activity  was a game called house of fortune where you had to place money (counters) on a board, you have 2 dices and when you roll a 12 you take all the money from the board and I was a deadly EXECUTIONIST who would murder you all!    (Only joking) (Finlay)

My favorite was making the shields for our family with mr hall. (Molly)

On wednesday 25th we all in upper base were dressed up as Tudors.We also took part in amazing activates, at the start of the day we went into the hall to do a cat walk and there were a lot of fantastic costumes but nun as good as our teachers. we did four fun activates; making crests, house drawings, played tudor games and did acting from Shakespeare’s Macbeth then in the afternoon it was normal school.

Nun of this was possible without our awesome staff. (Ewen and Daisy)
