2D experience life in Elizabethan times.

September 28, 2020

Today Class 2D had the chance to experience some parts of Elizabethan life. First of all we became archers and learnt to shoot arrows from a bow. We also had a go at some games that were popular in Elizabethan times – bowls and quoits.

Later we had a special visitor – it was Sir Francis Drake. He told us about how he had sailed around the world, collected gold and jewels for Queen Elizabeth and discovered new foods like potatoes and chocolate!

At lunchtime we had a picnic on the grass in the sunshine and then we had a go at writing using a quill and ink on paper called parchment. Then our last job was to learn a dance that was popular in Elizabethan times.
