Going to the River Thames!

On Friday 9th of December, 5F went to the River Thames.  At first we had to wait until the tide went out.   We went into this room and we had to do a quiz about the River Thames and about the water cycle.

Finally, we got to go onto the beach  (which is actually called the foreshore). We had to go slowly down the steps but once we got down them we found lots and lots of artifacts.



Year 4 ‘Banquet for Henry’


Our two comperes, Maia and Gabriel welcomed the lords and ladies to the Tudor banquet and introduced each act of the entertainment.

We began the proceedings with singing and Tudor dancing to ‘Past Time with Good Company’ written by Henry VIII himself.


Next, we performed our witches’ spells based on Shakespeare’s ‘Song of the Witches’ from Macbeth.

We then performed the songs we wrote about Bloody Mary, Henry VIII’s first daughter who was called Bloody Mary for burning Protestants at the stake!


We then performed our very own Tudor advert for sugar toothpaste favoured by Queen Elizabeth I.  No wonder her teeth were black!

We were delighted to see so many of the parents get involved with our Tudor activities of illuminated manuscript and the Tudor portrait competition.


We were so proud of our Tudor Banquet and hope that you enjoyed it as much as we did!
