The Perse School

Life in Tudor England

10 Feb 2012

Year 4 had a wonderful Tudor time on Tuesday under the watchful eye of ‘Master Alan’ from ‘History Off the Page’. The day included several workshops for everyone including being the alchemist’s apprentices, making soap balls and pomanders, making scent bags, making ink and writing with quill pens, sawing limbs off at the barber surgeon’s stall and dipping candles.

During the afternoon session we experienced a Tudor ‘banquet’ with role-playing of servants, entertainers, nobility and even a dragon!

The scent of ‘Tudor’ lingered in classrooms and the hall courtesy of scent and medicine bags and we are all avidly watching the progress of our pomanders as they dry out in the classroom.
