Deepings Community Library workshop brings Tudor living to life

Children's lessons were brought to life with a special Tudor workshop hosted at the Deepings Community Library.

Performers from Red Fox Re-enactments led children through a witch trial at a Tudor court, making gingerbread and a lesson on Tudor dancing or protection from evil.

Year five and six pupils from Baston Primary School, Langtoft Primary School and Linchfield Primary School took part in the activities.

Each class has been learning about the Tudors as part of their curriculum this year so the workshops helped to consolidate their learning and bring their knowledge to life.

Library coordinator Louisa Crowson said: "The children really enjoyed it and were captivated by the activities. They all enjoyed different aspects of the day, but the witch trial was popular.

"Our schools day is a great add-on to the work the children have already been doing at school."

It is the second time the volunteer-run library has hosted a schools day. Last year's event focussed on bees and was attended by the same three schools.

The workshop was funded by InvestSK's heritage alliance grant.

Louisa added: "We hope to be able to hold a day like this every year.

"We believe children study well out of the classroom but not everyone can afford trips out and school budgets are tight.

"Offering a session like this at the library helps build community links."
