P3 Trip to the Royal Armouries Leeds
As part of the P3 History project on the Tudors the boys travelled to the Royal Armouries in Leeds to participate in various workshops about Tudor Tournaments and armaments. After looking around relevant exhibits the boys had an opportunity to get a hands-on experience with some of the equipment used at the famous ‘Fields of cloth of Gold’. A major event in the life of Henry VIII. They also had a go at embossing their own armour designs.
The boys found the museum fascinating and it gave them the opportunity to imagine what life was like in the past. Prep School teachers recognise how significant first-hand experiences can be to enhance learning. This trip provided valuable discussion amongst the boys and practical activities to help develop understanding of history.
The boys were well behaved throughout the day and were true ambassadors for the school.
