J5 from Highclare Woodfield spent a very enjoyable and informative day in Stratford, studying and learning about all areas of Tudor life. The children experienced a variety of activities at The Shakespeare Centre and were interested and fascinated by the lives of people in Tudor times. They especially enjoyed writing with ink and quill pens, studying genuine Tudor coins and seeing authentic documents in the vaults.
J5 then visited Shakespeare’s house and birthplace, where the cramped and basic facilities compared to today’s houses were noticed. A walk through Stratford followed and the children looked at the different architecture and style of the buildings.
