The Tudors

During this half term, we’ll meet a very important figure from history who will give us a problem to solve. Online research will help us to write newspaper reports about influential people of the period, and we’ll use source materials to create a Tudor timeline. Tudor portraits will provide us with the inspiration to create royal paintings; we’ll learn a courtly dance and compose Tudor music.  We will be visiting Cotehele and learning about the differences between rich and poor.  Internet research will help us learn more about Henry’s life, his marriages and his break from the Roman Catholic church.
We have visited Cotehele and learnt about the story of Sir Richard Edgcumbe.  Using this information we have written play scripts about how he tricked the King's men and escaped to France.
