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.
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.
