Year 5 Hampton Court Trip

Written by Livvy Patel and Toby Middleton

On Thursday 18th November, year 5 visited Hampton Court Palace as part of our history topic on the Tudors.


Whilst there, we went to:

  • the haunted gallery and saw the painting of Henry VIII’s family with Jane Seymour,
  • the kitchens, where a man told us about how fashion and food has changed through the ages.


After the kitchens, we explored the young Henry exhibition and saw the Field of the Cloth of Gold.

Following that, we went to the Chapel Royal and saw the intricate gold and blue ceiling.

We also took part in a fascinating workshop where we looked at a range of artefacts and sources to learn about Henry VIII.

Everybody had a fantastic, but tiring day out! Thank you to all the parents who came and helped us on the trip.
