Y4J Tudor Red Lodge Visit

Yesterday, Y4J went to The Tudor Red Lodge in Bristol to experience what life must have been like back in the Tudor times.  We dressed up in Tudor costumes and welcomed Queen Elizabeth I and her court to Bristol.  We explored different artefacts of the time and learned about the different groups in society at the time.  A great learning experience was had!

Today Y5C was treated to some extra breakfast when Izza brought in some Mexican caramel custard.  Izza borrowed a school library book on Mexican cooking and went home to try out some recipes.  The class enjoyed trying it and are looking forward to undertaking some Mexican cooking in class next term.
