Year 4 girls visit Selly Manor
01 December 2017
Year 4 girls thoroughly enjoyed their trip to Selly Manor. They were able to share their knowledge with the guides there, both of whom were impressed by their recall of facts.
All the girls discovered how the more wealthy Tudors would have lived. They were able to lay the table in the dining room, try out the truckle bed and wear some of the helmets. They learned about the food that would have been eaten and how it was cooked.
There were opportunities to dress up as Tudor men and women and play some typical Tudor games – skittles, five stones, diabolo and many more.
The day ended with their Tudor Christmas play. The staff at Selly Manor say that their Christmas always begins when EHS girls visit. We hope that parents will enjoy seeing the play when they join us for assembly next week.
