Mrs Newbery's Class - 5/6N
A Fabulous start to our Spring Term topic...
Class 5/6N enjoyed a morning visit from a representative of Northampton Museum. The children had a chance to explore Tudor artefacts and dress like royalty... and the not so royal!
No pencils in Tudor schools!
Infants received basic learning at "petty school". At 6 or 7 some of the richer boys went on to grammar school. Poorer boys started to learn a trade.
The girls would learn to read at petty schools, but after that they were taught domestic skills, at home, by their mothers
