A taste of Tudor times

J2s enjoyed their annual history trip to Sulgrave Manor, impressively dressed in Tudor attire. Sammy Layish of J2B has more:

Our trip started at 9 o’clock in the morning and we were on our way to Sulgrave on the coach. When we got there we were greeted by a woman wearing a maid’s dress and a man wearing a rich man’s suit. We were shown to a vegetable garden and allowed to taste some. We then went into the kitchen and a lady talked to us about the food. In the Tudor times people did not know about germs. 

 We went upstairs into the master bedroom, where there was a huge bed with a canopy and beautiful artwork on it. Next to it was a baby in a crib. Afterwards, we went to look at the poor people’s home - it did not have any windows or floor. In the afternoon we went into the big hall to play, sing and dance. We sang nursery rhymes and we made our own orchestra! We also played Tudor games. We then went out to say goodbye and went back to school.
