Year 6 - Harvington Hall

Year 6 have studied Harvington Hall. To get a better understanding of the significance of Harvington Hall, we first looked at the reformation and the impact it had on the Catholic Church particularly in England and here in Birmingham. The pupils then studied the history of Harvington Hall from when it was built in the 1580s all the way up to today. Many fascinating facts were discovered, the most fascinating being that the Hall was home to many priest holes that hid priests when it was illegal to do so.


Year 6 visited Harvington Hall where they got to explore the property and try to find some of the priest holes (just like the pursuivants would have all those years ago). The pupils also had fun experiencing Tudor traditions such as their work-life, their home life, and their dancing. I am sure they would love to show you a move or two.
