Year 5 Trip to Penshurst Place
Year 5 had an enjoyable trip taking part in “Armada Day”at Penshurst Place. A team of actors portrayed different aspects of Tudor life in 1588 as we moved around different parts of the house and grounds.
The Ladies’ maid dressed up some of the pupils in Tudor clothes with B McKeogh looking especially grand as a Tudor lady. A Spanish prisoner from the Armada had some interesting views on the events of 1588 while a Sergeant Daines threatened a number of our pupils with a variety of Tudor weapons. We learnt a great deal about Tudor food and drink with J Phillips excelling as a spit boy. A Tudor musician played different instruments in the Barons Hall. Luckily there was a log fire burning in the middle to keep us warm. Year 5 had some difficulty with the dancing not seeming to know their left from right! A barber surgeon performed various gruesome operations on pupils. H Blackman’s sore throat was cured by swallowing a frog and A West and W Morris appeared unaffected by their trepanning operations.
Our last activity was about Tudor crimes and punishments. We attempted to leave A Bertrand in the stocks but he managed to escape!
