History – Queen Elizabeth I

In history, we have been learning about Queen Elizabeth I. We have watched videos, read books and looked at pictures to help us understand more about Queen Elizabeth’s life and how she became the Queen of England. We visited the Old Palace in Hatfield House, where Elizabeth lived when she was growing up and did some sketching of the different features. We saw the oak tree where Elizabeth was sitting when she found out that she was going to be the Queen of England.

It was exciting to be walking where Queen Elizabeth I would have walked over 400 years ago. When we got back to school we put ourselves in Queen Elizabeth’s shoes and thought about how she might have felt when she became Queen.
