Crime and Punishment

 

We learnt that punishment in Tudor times was often brutal. In fact, during Henry VIII’s 38-year reign, around 72,000 people were executed! Year 5 created information posters detailing crime and punishment in the Tudor era.

Pomanders

 Year 5 all made a pomander. Pomanders are perfumed balls usually made from an orange. From medieval times right up to the 18th century, they were carried, worn or hung in rooms against "foule, stinkying aire". In the court of Queen Elizabeth I, pomanders were worn in bejewelled gold and silver containers.

How easy was it to write in Tudor times?Year 5 all created their own riddle and then wrote it down using a homemade quill and homemade ink. Was it easy to use a quill? Most of the class found it messy and time consuming, but they sure had fun!
