Over two days last week and this week, the History Department took Year 8 to Hampton Court Palace. The pupils have been studying the Tudors in their lessons and were impressed by the size of the palace and the splendour of the Tudor royal apartments including the Great Hall, the Great Watching Chamber and the Chapel Royal.
In each area they were encouraged to look at specific details such as the royal and Tudor symbols, the chimneys, the King’s beasts and the magnificent hammer beam roof in the Great Hall. They were asked to draw inferences and think about how the Tudors used bricks and mortar, architecture and art as instruments of power and control, and as usual the pupils completed their questionnaires carefully and conscientiously.
