ROYAL Opera House Trailblazer school, Lansdowne Primary staged a very special Tudor Experience recently to celebrate the work they have been doing about the Tower of London and the story of Anne Boleyn. Family and friends were invited into school to see the work and share the experience.
Students from Lansdowne Primary School in Tilbury visited the Tower of London earlier in the year and learnt all about Henry VIII’s ill-fated second wife, Anne Boleyn. The pupils were inspired to research the heraldry of both the Tudors and Anne Boleyn.
All Year 6 children had a part to play in the experience, singing and acting out the wedding celebrations and birth of the first child of Anne Boleyn and Henry VIII, complete with performing jesters, musicians and dancers.
Year 6 teacher and coordinator, Miss Angela Brinklow said “It was truly a great performance by all of the pupils who worked hard on their outfits and spoke so eloquently to their family and friends. I am very proud of them for putting in such a great effort.”
Vice Principal, Mrs Natalie Cummings, said “What can I say? Lansdowne’s got talent! The children and staff have worked tirelessly to put on a great show for all our parents, carers and visitors. It was lovely for our children to have the opportunity to showcase their artistic talents and hopefully this is a good foundation to build upon for future performances at Lansdowne.”
