Hampton Court

Each Year 5 class has visited Hampton Court Palace – the home of Henry VIII. Pupils took part in a workshop called ‘Tudor Fun and Games’- an exploration into the world of Tudor sport and pastimes. They also discovered what it was like to be a child in the Tudor Age.

For their second session, each class were given a ‘Digital Mission’ – The Ambassador’s Secret Assignment. This was a character-led adventure where pupils navigated and observed palace spaces, while solving challenges on an iPad. Each mission encouraged pupils to use the palace as a primary source to weigh historical evidence.
