Tudor Foods with Year 5

The Year 5’s are looking at life during the Tudor period. For Funky Foods we looked at the difference in diets between the very rich and the poor. The children explored the various meals that the Tudors cooked, and learnt about King Henry VIII and the 1000 meals made at Hampton Court Palace every single day.

They prepared and cooked a peasants meal of Vegetable Pottage made from seasonal vegetables, pearl barley and herbs. To go alongside this meal they made wholemeal bread rolls.
