Primary school youngsters got a taste of life back in the Tudor era when they dressed as kings and queens and dined at a banquet.
The interactive history sessions took place at Sandford Primary School where children learned what life would have been like at a Tudor court during the reign of Henry VIII or Elizabeth I.
They dressed up as queens wearing flowing gowns with headdresses or as kings, knights and barons.
As well as settling down to enjoy a banquet for lunch, laid out on long tables as they would have been in palaces during the era, the youngsters also took part in a number of sport activities.
They took up wooden swords for a mock jousting competition, and also had a go at archery, a popular pastime back in 15th and 16th century England.
The Tudor day was organised as part of the youngsters’ history lessons.
