5SH Recreate The Battle Of Bosworth Field

On a gloriously sunny and crisp morning this week 5SH delved headfirst into their Tudors Topic and found themselves at Bosworth Field (otherwise known as our School Playing Fields). What better way to learn about the Wars of the Roses?! The pupils were quickly armed with bows (minus the arrows for obvious health and safety reasons) and swords (plastic hockey sticks – again H&S).

Once the pupils were ‘armed’ the re-enactment of the Battle of Bosworth Field began in earnest with King Richard III (Michelle) being defeated by Henry Tudor (Johnnie) thus beginning the Tudor Dynasty. A brilliantly immersive lesson and one that we hope the pupils will remember for a long time!
