Year 3 and 4
On 13th June 2012, Year 3&4 came to school dressed as Tudors. Coincidentally we had a very important visitor come to see us, none other than Henry VIII!
He came to church with us and took rather a shine to Miss Denholm! He was very happy to attend the service and meet one of his humble, loyal clergy, Reverend Mynors. He also enjoyed the excellent responses to the sermon and the singing.
King Henry VIII returned with us to the Year 3&4 classroom. He told us all about his life, including his father Henry VII, elder brother Arthur, his son Edward, and of course his six wives. Intriguingly, he refused to discuss his daughters Mary and Elizabeth, who he had disowned because they were girls!
Our violin teacher, asked if he could entertain the King with his rendition of Green Sleeves, a song accredited to Henry VIII.
Henry was most pleased. However he was unfamiliar with the town of Milton Keynes, where our violin teacher originates from!
We had a wonderful time with the King. He kindly gave us all a present of a silver groat coin for our loyalty and attentiveness.
Long live the King!
