How did rich and poor Tudors live? Year 4 found out in our hot seating session.Copy of DSCF4976Copy of DSCF4969Copy of DSCF4985 

Year 4 had a very exciting vist from Sir John Radcliff, Mary and Ruth their housekeeper at Ordsall Hall.

Sir John, Mary and Ruth explained all about the Tudor Monarchs.

Then we played guess the artifact, which was lots of fun and very interesting.

What do youDSCF5027 think these items were used for?











We had lots of fun, but Sir John, Mary and Ruth had to return to Ordsall Hall to get ready for a banquet.

 Before they left, Mary told us how Tudors used to get rid of bad smells.

They made pomanders, we decided to make some.

The children used oranges and cloves to make pomanders.DSCF5087



It was a bit tricky, but our classroom smells amazing!
