Anne of Cleves by Cerys

Cerys’s History project came back with a note from Henry about how impressed he was with her artwork and that she could perhaps be a rival for his great court painter Hans Holbein the Younger (c1497-1543)

Izobella’s Tudor Project

Getting near the end of the Tudor Food projects. There was so much amazing work done earlier this year, including this beautifully presented book by Izobella:

Alex’s Tudor Food Project

This is an amazing project from Alex in Moneybury. This book is just beautiful and should be a real treasure to look back upon when Alex is older.

Amelia Henry Portrait

Here’s a couple of inserts from Amelia’s History project.  The hand-drawn infographics are a particularly effective way to present comparison information:

Here is a Powerpoint from Melody’s Tudor project earlier this year, overlooked at the time because her memory stick was doubling as a book mark in her recipe book!

Cerys’s Diary of a Tudor Sailor

Dear Diary,

Today was just one  normal dreary day of tired on board ship. It all started when my friend Jon when he tipped me out of my hammock that was full of disgusting slimy maggots that fell on top of me and some fell into my mouth. I screamed with horror from how disgusting they were, because I nearly swallowed  Now I knew I would be late for my turn to clean up on deck if I didn’t hurry up and get dressed. As soon as I could I ran to get ready, but I got delayed for about one minute because the ship toppled from side to side. I found it so hard to hold on to something, but I succeeded for a few seconds then I slipped and bumped and crashed my way to the other side of the ship and slammed my head and nearly fainted.

Jon and a few other people who I didn’t know as well as I know now rushed over to me see what happened. They all had a look at the large bump on my head. One of them told me I might have to go to the barber surgeon with horror and my heart was pumping so fast, I felt like my head was going to explode like a bomb filled with maggot biscuits and sea water.

So they all helped me up to the top of the ship and sat me alone on such an uncomfy chair but it was the best you can get on a ship like this. Soon the ship’s captain stormed over at me and took one look at my bump and said I was absolutely fine. I was so glad I didn’t have to go to the terrible barber surgeon, but then he told me it was still my turn up on top deck today. I was a bit disappointed because I thought I had got out of that, but I guess not, so I went to get the mop and by the time I am finished I will be covered all over in rat wee and poo. Disgusting I thought to myself.

Still more History projects

Jacob in Moneybury produced this beautifully designed Recipe Book for his Tudor project earlier in the year. A lot of time and effort has gone into this. Click the link for the interactive book:
