Year 3: Layer Marney Tower Trip

Year 3 had a fantastic day at Layer Marney Tower, the tallest Tudor Gatehouse in the country. The children were excited to learn about the Tudors in this historic building, which once housed Lord Marney, Henry VIII closest friend. They walked the corridors and explored the rooms of the 500 year old gatehouse and saw the tombs of the owners from 1555.

Year 3 enjoyed playing archery, eating Tudor food and attending a Tudor-style school where they learnt Latin and used a quill to write their names.

"Archery was my favourite part of the day. I felt like Robin Hood," said one excited pupil.
