Majestic Monarchs Autumn Term

Our topic for the Autumn term is “Majestic Monarchs”.  The topic starts with the children participating in their own version of the Battle of Bosworth, which started the Tudor reign.  The children will then develop a strong understanding of the Tudor kings and queens, their influence on Britain at the time and their legacy. The children will study the decisions and changes made by the Tudor monarchs relating to religion, healthcare, social hierarchies and punishment.  

In the second part of the term, we will be taking part in a Tudor Murder Mystery!  The children will create a historical journal as a Tudor character exploring each monarch and the influential decisions they made during their reign and their effect on Britain. They will include various forms of writing including diaries, letters, information leaflets and instructions.

The second half term also includes a trip to Hampton Court Palace (if permitted) and culminates in a Tudor day, in which the children will participate in a range of Tudor activities.
