Tudor Times for Year 8 at Knole Park

On Thursday 6th June, Mr Neve, Mr Trimby, Mrs Ingall and Miss Wood took the Year 8 students to Knole Park in Sevenoaks. The trip was to support the students in their learning about life in Tudor and Stuart times. The students handled a range of objects from the Tudor and Stuart times, having to guess what the purpose of the objects were and who would have used them in their everyday lives. They were then given a special guided tour around the main house at Knole, viewing artwork, spotting witch marks and learning about the history of the building and its owners. After a lovely sunny lunch in the main quadrangle of the house, they then learnt about Tudor clothing and had the opportunity to dress up as a person from Tudor times! The day ended with a guided tour around the parkland where they experienced the flora and fauna of the park. They also got to see dozens of the parks famous fallow deer population, up close! A great day. The National Trust staff were full of praise for the students conduct and enthusiasm during the day and are looking forward to the trip taking place again next year.
