Boys in the 1st Year visited a piece of great English history earlier this month when they made the trip to Hever Castle, the home of King Henry VIII’s wife, Anne Boleyn.
The visiting party were given a guided tour of the castle, including Henry VII’s bed, the drawbridge, portraits of the famous king’s wives, weapons and Anne Boleyn’s personal bedroom. During the tour, the boys were able to show off their knowledge of Tudor roses, which certainly impressed the guides.
After some action-packed time on the adventure playground, the boys replenished their energy with a picnic lunch, whilst trying to stop the resident ducks from eating their sandwiches! That energy was soon put to good use as the children delved into the water maze, where they got thoroughly soaked and had a fantastic time.
This was a very enjoyable day for all involved and one the boys will remember for a long time to come. Everyone was given a goodie-bag as a souvenir of the trip. A special thank you goes to Mrs Holmes for accompanying the boys and helping the staff members.
