Tudor day

On Tuesday 14th June Class 3 had a visit from John Conyard who hosted a Tudor day.  John brough many artefacts including weapons, armour, potter, cutlery, coins and clothing.  The children learned about the Tudor housing, food, medicine, medical practices and weaponry.  Some of the children got to dress up in the armour and clothing – the armour was very heavy!  There were a variety of weapons that some children got to handle, including the iron sword pictured below. 

Harry shared that the Blacksmiths would fake a bullet impact on the crossbows when creating them to pretend they were stronger.

Willow said that she got to pick up bullets with the medical instruments used to remove bullets from patients.
