Brixington pupils learn of life as Tudors

Brixington Primary School pupils swapped school uniform for doublets, hose and ruffs when they learned about the life of the Tudors.

Youngsters from Years 5 and 6 recently visited Buckland Abbey, in Yelverton, which was built by Cistercian monks and later bought by Sir Francis Drake.

A spokeswoman for Brixington school said: “The children learnt all about the exploits of Sir Francis Drake from within his former home and were fortunate enough to dress and dance just like the Tudors.”
