CHILDREN and teachers wore Tudor fancy dress to school in a bid to learn more about their ancestors.

Junior pupils at Bromley High in Bickley wore their costumes to school and took part in workshops recreating Tudor skills and pastimes.

They made candles, scent bags, soap balls, embroidered muckenders (handkerchiefs), and practised their leatherworks and handwriting skills using quills and ink, last month. In the afternoon, the entertainment came in the form of dancing, singing, acting and jest, during a Tudor banquet.
