As part of our Tudor Exploration topic, we recently visited Kentwell Hall to learn more about the way of life for people living in the 16th Century.

We had a great day hearing all about the jobs carried out at the Manor house. We especially loved the smells in the Bakery and the musical sounds from the Player - who also taught us a dance from the time. 

Did you know that the more wealthy and important guests in the house were given the 'upper crust' of the bread rolls? The poorer workers ate the bottom of the bread that was often black and scorched from the oven!
