The fascinating day saw all the children come to school dressed as Tudors, and showed that Tudor history in schools is no longer merely about battles and beheadings but a-hands-on experience of how the common people lived.
Pictured left are Heath Stockton and Xanthe Watkin finishing their session as Tudor builders, applying their hand-made daub mixture to the wattle framework.
Buildings such as Cheshire's beautiful Gawsworth Hall were made by applying a combination of wet soil, clay, sand, straw and even animal dung to a wooden lattice framework.
King's Infant & Junior Challenge and Enrichment Coordinator Simon Thomas said: "Obviously, we stopped short of using all of the original mix but showed how the final construction produced a strong and resilient construction material as is proved by the many local buildings that still survive half a millennia later."
The boys and girls practised their writing just as Shakespeare would have done on scrolls and with a quill and ink. They learned Tudor dance steps and even made their own herb bags to ward off illness and bad spirits just like a respected Tudor apothecary.
Mr Thomas added: "It is important to learn about political history and the turn of events, but the children simply love social history and discovering how their ancestors got by day in day out."
