DRESSED in 16th century clothing and holding feather quills, pupils at St John's School went back in time for a day last week.
The children took part in a Tudor Day which was the culmination of a term's project for years three and four.
All the children and their teacher, Mrs Colwill, arrived at school dressed in amazing Tudor costumes.
The children wrote with real feather quills and practiced calligraphy by working on the alphabet and then writing their name in script.

They then played Tudor games and activities including fencing with foam swords, learning cross stitch and dancing the Spanish Pavelle to Tudor music.
Rebecca Colwill, form tutor, said: "Today was the culmination of a project which has been running all term. The children had a great day and it really helped to bring their learning to life."

The final event of the day was a short play about Henry VIII and his wives. Parents and guardians were invited to watch the play which took place in the School Drama Hall.
The class even had their own 'blackbirds baked in a pie', which in Tudor times people made for amusement.
However on this occasion it was made with toy birds under a real pastry crust.
