A Step Back in Time

A group of Year 5 boys joined children from schools across the region last Friday to take part in Christ’s Hospital School’s Living History Day. 

The children and their teachers travelled back in time by taking part in a range of Tudor-themed activities and met characters from across the Tudor dynasty, whilst taking in the history of the school, which was founded by Edward VI in 1552.

The day proved to be highly enjoyable and memorable as the boys learned about the monarchs from the time of the school’s foundation and experienced what it was like to dress as a founding member of Christ’s Hospital.

They also witnessed activities related to fire across time and watched a stunning demonstration of birds of prey.

The boys were fortunate enough to hear the Christ’s Hospital Chamber choir singing in chapel and took part in the school’s daily tradition of marching from their boarding houses into lunch to the accompaniment of the band.
