Pupils at Upottery Primary School become Tudors for the day.

Pupils at Upottery Primary School became royalty for the day and were transported back to Tudor times.

They spent the day dressed as kings and queens, courtiers and noblemen and also took part in some special activities including making jewelled goblets for a banquet, quill writing, designing heraldic shields and making pomanders from oranges and cloves.

A great time was had by all.
