Sulgrave Manor ...a spectacular Tudor home on a dry, sunny autumn day ... who could have asked for more? We all enjoyed the Tudor experience and who would have believed that ALL the children would enjoy dressing up a la Tudor? We learned so much about the period - clothing, food, living, and exploration. But it was dressing up that had the greatest impact from the very first. We realised that the clothing was actually very comfortable to wear - although we didn't have the problems of not wearing any undergarments! Indeed, there were audible groans from both boys and girls, at the end of the day, when they had to disrobe and return to the 21st century. Some of the girls are already talking about designing and making their own Tudor costumes - an idea for DT perhaps? An enormous 'thank you' to all our Y5 parents for providing the children with additive-free, wholesome Tudor lunches, and a big 'thank you ' to Angus and Oliver for the wonderful tarts and to Isabella for my marchpane sweet. Unsurprisingly, the children were an absolute delight, and their enthusiastic and polite behaviour was positively commented upon. Do look out for our report in the newsletter at the end of the week.

Isabella and Eva made some superb Tudor sweets from 'marchpane' which we know as marzipan. I'm sure you'll agree that they look fantastic, well done girls.

Orange, purple or white ...which is the original colour of carrots in the Tudor period?Surprisingly, the purple. If people from the 16th century were eating carrots today, they would definitely steer clear of the strange looking orange vegetable!

Tudor cookery - to prepare us for the considerably plainer diet of the Tudor era (well, for more ordinary citizens) we made pasties 'Tudor style' ...NO potatoes! But, the pasties were delicious. And what can you do with left over pastry? Well, make jam tarts of course! The Tudors believed that fresh fruit was unhealthy and even dangerous so they preserved many fruits and made jams. Not only did we enjoy the cooking experience (Thank you SO much Mrs Yeatman, you are a real star) but we really enjoyed tasting ... or indeed, guzzling our wares. Now we have more ideas for our Tudor lunchboxes for our trip to Sulgrave Manor.

Autumn Term 2017 – Y5 class book.

Our book this half term is ‘First Blood’, the first book in the ‘Spy Master’ series by Jan Burchett and Sara Vogler. Set in 1532 at the court of King Henry VIII it is an exciting tale of secrets and intrigue.

We will be completing our reading work at school and for homework (comprehension and grammar) based on this book so I would be grateful if you will order this for your child as soon as possible.

Many thanks,

Liz Mahony
