Terrible Tudors?

Highgate Woods was the perfect setting for a re-enactment of the 1485 Battle of Bosworth, which was hugely popular with our Year 4 children, as they began their topic the Terrible Tudors? They are looking forward to discovering if the Tudors really were as terrible as their reputation! The children will follow an historical enquiry in which they evaluate the reigns of Henry VIII and Elizabeth I, have the opportunity to study the break with Rome, the wives of Henry VIII and the Spanish Invasion. The children will also consider what it would have been like to live during Tudor times and will be paying a visit to Hampton Court Palace, where Henry VIII’s only legitimate son, Prince Edward was born and where Henry married his sixth and last wife, Katherine Parr.
