Tudor School

Role-play and object handling

By Jenny Hastings

The Tudor Chantry School day at Ashwell offers a unique experience for KS2 pupils.  After an introduction in the Parish Room, pupils spend the morning in St. Mary's church, in role as Tudor school children. Lunch is eaten in the Parish Room, or on the village recreation grounds in fine weather.  This is followed by a walk around the village to investigate timber framed buildings.  In the afternoon, pupils visit Ashwell Museum where they are given the opportunity to handle a variety of objects that would have been used in Tudor households.

The programme is led by Jenny Hastings, an experienced museum and heritage educator who specialises in historical role-play. It can also be adapted for KS1 pupils who are investigating 'Schools in the Past'. To make a booking, or to find out more, please contact Jenny.
