Hampton Court Palace

Year 5 went on an amazing trip to Hampton Court Palace. When we arrived we went straight to a workshop about the young Henry VIII. In one hour we learnt about Catherine of Aragon and why Henry wanted to divorce her, Cardinal Thomas Wolsey, the Pope, the court meeting about Catherine of Aragon and what Henry did in his spare time. We then went on a costume tour round the whole of Hampton Court - it’s huge! My favourite part was when we went to the gallery and saw all the portraits of the Tudor family and the replica of Henry VIII's crown! It was a great trip and we all want to go back soon.
