THE past came vividly to life at South Farnham School as children in year five enjoyed their annual Tudor Day.

Children and teachers alike dressed in period costume and enjoyed a fun-filled day of Tudor activities.

The school’s computing suite became Shakespeare’s writing studio, giving the children the opportunity to storyboard one of the Bard’s famous plays.

Other activities on offer throughout the day included Tudor dancing, brass rubbing and a crime and punishment workshop.

The annual event, which involves all 136 children in year five, saw a variety of kings, queens, princes, princesses, jesters and executioners walking the corridors throughout the day.

Chris Joint, co-ordinator for year five, described the event as a “great success” and praised the children for their effort.

“Everyone really got into the spirit of the day and we all had a lot of fun this year,” he said.

“There was a good mix of costumes and I know the children will be talking about it for a long time to come.

“I would like to say a big thank you to all of the staff who helped to make history come alive.”
