Trip to Weald & Downland Museum

Yesterday Year 2 stepped back in time to explore Medieval and Tudor times.  In the Tudor kitchen we made butter and tasted bread and fish cooked on the open fire. We explored the different materials used in these historic buildings.  We have made up our own quiz.  Do you know the answers?

Why were there curtains around the four poster bed?

Why were there shutters and no glass in the windows?

How did they start a fire in Medieval times without matches?

Why was the open fire in the centre of the room in Medieval times?
