Y4 visit to the Tower of London

Today, Year 4 enjoyed their educational visit to the Tower of London. This was a great way to find out a little bit more about the Tudors, and we even had the opportunity to meet Lady Latimer – aka Katherine Parr – shortly after she had accepted King Henry VIII’s marriage proposal! Do you remember what year we were in?

We found out about Henry’s previous five wives, and learnt the beginning of the rhyme, “Divorced, beheaded, died, divorced, beheaded…” but how does it end?! Can you find out what happened to his sixth and final wife?

The children were very excited by the ravens, and most of them managed to hang on to their lunches! We also had the opportunity to see the Crown Jewels.

All in all, a fabulous day.
