'I'm 'Enery the 8th, I am'
Our big project for the Spring term was to be our Easter family show on Henry 8th. Our show was based on the elements of Henry's reign which caught the children's imaginations; and they created a show to include his broad range of interests, the Field of the Cloth of Gold, the sinking of the Mary Rose, his marriages and the dissolution of the monasteries - and his love of finery and food!. We have practised music and songs and Tudor dances. We have made costumes and created scenery and sets. For us, this is a big step up in magnitude. The process has provided wonderful learning and the creation of something original of which the children are proud - but unfortunately, no show!
