Year 5 Trip to The London Charterhouse

As part of their History Topic ‘Off with Her Head’ Year 5 got the opportunity to go back in time and visit the London Charterhouse and find out lots more about what life was like in the Tudor times. The Reformation under King Henry VIII forever changed life at the Charterhouse. The class explored the former monastery and heard all about medieval monks before discovering Henry’s VIII’s personal reasons for a new religious order. Then we went on to discover Tudor food, architecture and décor alongside the stories of those charged with keeping a grand Tudor mansion running. To finish we really enjoyed an onsite object handling session to consolidate the learning that we are doing in class!
