History of Tewkesbury
In History we have been learning all about Tewkesbury and the past. We learnt about the buildings in Tewkesbury and what they were used for. We learnt a poem all about the 30 alleyways, and researched why they have different names. We found out about Tewkesbury Abbey and what it was once used for. We also found out about the Battle of Tewkesbury that happened in 1471. We finally found out about medieval life and people.
In DT we have been making our own Medieval Feast. We made a vegetable pottage, bread rolls and spiced pears. We had to peel and chop the vegetables and we watched the bread prove. We tried our feast, some of us really enjoyed it.
Trip to Tewkesbury
As part of our history topic this term, we walked into Tewkesbury from school. We went to Tewkesbury Abbey to look around to find Prince Edward that died in the Battle of Tewkesbury. We also went to the 'Out of the Hat' museum to find out about Bartholomew Read who was a glove maker. We took a boat ride along the Avon which we really enjoyed. We had great fun having a picnic in the Abbey grounds and enjoyed an ice-cream!
