  4. 4. Royal Visitor On Thursday 25th November, Year 4, dressed in their best Tudor finery, eagerly awaited the arrival of King Henry V111. As he entered, he was welcomed to a fanfare of drums, cymbals and bells by his loyal Norwood subjects. King Henry gave the children a rare insight into the daily life of Hampton Court and patiently listened to and answered their questions. Disappointed by Hans Holbein’s portrait of his fourth wife, Henry commissioned Year 4 to draw sketches of him to hang on the walls in the Great Hall. Prior to the visit, soup was prepared in the kitchen (actually Year 4 central area) in case the King was hungry. Daniel Mercer-Jones, the King’s official servant and taster, checked that the soup hadn’t been poisoned. Fortunately he lived to tell the tale. What a responsibility! Daniel checking the soup for poison! Models, Models and More Models!As part of their extended Tudor Homework Year 4 were asked to make a Tudor model, draw sketches of their design, write a diary and prepare a short presentation. The response was overwhelming. Amongst the modelswere, knights in shining armour with swords, shields and daggers, Tudor mansions, cottages and even streets.Castles made from wood, card, paper with draw bridgesand flags and peg dolls dressed in costume. There weregory executions, a knot garden and even a replica of the Mary Rose, to name but a few.Parents were invited after school to view the models and celebrate the hard work of the children. Morrisons Vouchers Well done Norwood! 2,800 vouchers were collected. FantasticNews team Molly Glinn, Hannah Tear, Megan Powderly, Jamie Russell, Katy Watkinson, Taylor McKenzie & Finn Cromack
