Giant Henry VIII

On Wednesday 28th November as part of our Tudor Day the children in Shakespeare, Tolkien and Horowitz classes created giant portraits of Henry VIII.

Within each class, each child was given a section of Henry VIII taken from a famous portrait of the King by Hans Holbein.  The children then had to recreate this section using a range of available media.  This included fabric, tissue paper, pastels, paints, paper and lots more. Once completed the sections were put back together to create the giant portrait of Henry VIII.  The results are amazing.  Please pop into our classrooms to see the finish portraits.

"I really enjoyed making the giant Henry VIII portrait, so much so that I wanted to make another one!" JD, Year 6.

"The massive Henry VIII was really fun to make and it looks amazing.  Everyone was so creative in their own way.  Some people included lots of detail in their section, whereas others kept theirs simple.  Together it looks great and the whole class loves it." KN, Year 6
