An Audience with Queen Elizabeth I

The L4th recently visited Tutbury Castle in Staffordshire for a private audience with Queen Elizabeth I.  Throughout the day pupils gained a fantastic insight into this historical figure and location, truly bringing the classroom to life.

During their meeting Queen Elizabeth I was able to tell pupils all about her life and times and answered lots of questions about the events of her reign and how she survived all the threats and challenges that she faced during her lifetime.

After an interesting talk pupils were able to explore the castle, climbing up the hill to get fantastic views over the countryside and wave newly purchased flags from the castle gift shop.

After a thorough exploration of all corners of the castle pupils were then invited into the great hall to learn about the history of Tutbury Castle, Jude and Harnekh were even able to handle real swords from hundreds of years ago.

L4 returned to school having had a thoroughly enjoyable visit, solidifying their knowledge of this important historical topic.
