A fabulous day enjoyed by 60 children and staff. Children were excited, engaged and enthused by the tasks provided, immersing them fully in the Tudor period. Andy and Alison are true masters of their craft. Thank you again for such an enjoyable day. Would certainly recommend to other schools and teachers.
