PUPILS in Year 5 at Caister Junior School stepped back in time to the Tudor period.

Children and staff dressed in Tudor costume for an audience with King Henry VIII. During the day pupils learned about the history of the Tudors, where they came from, what influence they had on British society and history, and what influence they are having still today.

The pupils dancing traditional Tudor dances entertained the King. Typical Tudor crimes and punishments were discussed with miscreants - both staff and children - who were put in the stocks.

The highlight of the day was a jousting tournament where children combined skill and speed in a fiendish game.

Head of Year 5, Debbie Dorsett, said: “The children looked the part in their splendid costumes and the day was enjoyed by all.”
