Year 4’s trip to Hampton Court

On Wednesday, Year 4 visited Hampton Court Palace.  We walked in the footsteps of Henry VIII’s courtiers and were in awe of his lavish lifestyle, with intricate tapestries, paintings and carvings, he even had golden ceilings! Some of us really didn’t like the carved eavesdroppers on the Great Hall though —they’d definitely make sure that we didn’t gossip about what was happening in court!  The kitchens were huge as they had so many people to feed. We found out about Tudor foods and how some words were spelt differently—such as ‘wyne’!  We thought the job of the spit boy who had to turn the meat all day would have been exceedingly dull, but it would definitely have been better than being a gong-scraper!   We had a great day out in the sunshine and the children were a pleasure to take out from school, behaving beautifully all day.                     TT & SH
