How do you usually spend your weekend? Last Sunday we visited the Warwick Castle, a real medieval castle! We had a chance to see the rooms of the royal families and their guests. Then we watched a part of the knight tournament and a birds of prey show. We could really feel the atmosphere of the past there!
Our next stop was Stratford-upon-Avon. It’s a lovely little town where Shakespeare was born. We walked along the Avon and saw a world famous Royal Shakespeare Theater. Unfortunately, we didn’t have enough time to see a play there. Also, we visited the Trinity Church where Shakespeare was buried. After that we went into the Grammar School where Shakespeare studied as a boy. It’s a pity we couldn’t attend any lessons there. It’s a town with such amazing atmosphere that we didn’t want to leave!
On our lessons we continue getting acquainted with the art of various epochs. First, we learn the history and some interesting facts about the period, then we get creative and experiment with different forms of art to really feel the epoch. Today we have started studying Tudor Times and we learnt a lot. For example, did you know that Henry VIII had six wives? At the end of the lessons we imagined our own coats of arms and used clay to make them. Not only we are improving our English skills but also we are getting better and better at art!
That’s all for now! See you next time!
