Y5/6 Oakwell Hall

On Wednesday 9th October, class 5/6 MA took a step back in time to the Tudor period. We had a fantastic day at Oakwell Hall taking on the roles as servants for Master and Mistress Batt. Whilst we were there we took part in lots of activities including: helping in the kitchen, quill pen writing, sketching, learning about Tudor artefacts, making lavender bags, taking part in a tour of the house and eating a Tudor meal. We also tried our very best to use some of the language spoken in Tudor times for example aye mistress. A great day was had by all! 


On Tuesday 8th October, 5/6 HG had an amazing day at Oakwell Hall. We arrived as a company of servants, looking for work at Master and Mistress Batt's home. We were welcomed in and put to work. Throughout the day, we tried to use some of the language used in Tudor times including aye Mistress and nay Mistress. 
We took part in 5 activities including making lavender herb bags, helping in the kitchen, learning about Tudor artefacts, quill pen writing and sketching. All the children enjoyed the day and looked fantastic in their Tudor costumes! 


5/6 DE had an amazing time at Oakwell Hall on Monday 7th October. The children imagined that they were a company of servants looking for work. They tried to use some of the language that was used in Tudor times like- aye Mistress and nay Mistress.
We had an interesting tour of the house and took part in 5 activities: making herb bags; helping in the kitchen; learning about different Tudor artefacts, sketching and quill writing. The children enjoyed a Tudor meal and loved playing hide and seek in the garden. Everyone looked great in their Tudor costumes and agreed that the real life of a servant was not for them!!!!
