Hampton Court Palace School trip


On Friday 17th November Oak class went on this terms class trip. They travelled all the way to London on a beautiful winter’s day and visited Hampton Court Palace (the home of Henry the 8th). The Pupils had an excited early start and left school at 7:30. They arrived at the palace at 10:30 and were amazed from the second they walked in. Pupils had the opportunity to watch live actors acting out important moments of Henry’s life. They visited all parts of the palace, which included seeing; Henry’s apartment; the grand hall; the famous golden ceiling; the grand chapel; Henry’s crown; a number of original kitchens, famous paintings and the fabulous gardens. Pupils also took part in a 90 minute Drama workshop, where they re-enacted scenes from Henry’s life. It was a fantastic day and all the pupils were fully engaged throughout the whole day. They really embraced the trip and enjoyed seeing all the things that they had learnt about of the term. Pupils were incredibly well behaved and were a credit to the school.
