Buckswood School: 7-9 May


10.05.2018

It’s wonderful that every student at Buckswood School has an opportunity to develop creativity, enhance writing skills and release all the energy playing football, netball, rugby and so on. These days we created our films and to promote it we had to make trailers. That was fun!

Travelling through the time is possible at least here in England. On the 8th of May all of us had another slice of Britain: Lewis castle and Anne of Cleves house. To make thr excursion more gripping and informative Mr. Felippe prepared a quiz for us. We had to take pictures of medieval objects, find information about the owners of the castle. So now we know that Lewes Castle was built in 1069 by William de Warenne who was an an advisor of William the Conqueror.
Every English schoolchild knows the rhyme, “divorced, beheaded, died, divorced, beheaded, survived”, about, in turn, Catherine of Aragon, Anne Boleyn, Jane Seymour, Anne of Cleves, Catherine Howard, and Catherine Parr. We had a chance to see Tudor’s family house that formed part of Queen Anne’s (Anne Cleves) annulment settlement from King Henry VIII in 1541, although she never visited the property.
