Purleigh: History brought to life

Maldon and Burnham Standard: Purleigh: History brought to life Purleigh: History brought to life

History was brought to life when a school turned back time to the Tudor period.

With the help of a firm called History off the Page, Purleigh Primary School pulled out all the stops to give pupils a taste of the 16th century.

The role play day saw the school hall transformed into a market place with different stalls where the children made beeswax candles, scent bags and wrote with quills and ink in Latin.

The day was rounded off with a Tudor banquet in the afternoon.
