Tudor Explorations at Kresen Kernow

Our lucky Year 4 pupils spent the morning at Kresen Kernow, home to the world’s largest collection of documents, books, maps and photographs related to Cornwall’s history.

The trip, designed to bring their topic on the Tudors to life, gave our pupils the chance to explore the library and the archives before being able to look at some original Tudor inventories. After an enjoyable workshop, the children then created their own inventories using quills and ink.

This trip is part of a rich offering of off-site activities we offer at Truro School Prep. Many of our trips make the most of our enviable location and rich Cornish heritage.

A huge thank you to the staff at Kresen Kernow and to all of our budding historians who represented the school so beautifully.
