'Off With Her Head' Topic

As an introduction to their 'Off with her head!' topic, Class 2 held a Tudor Banquet in their classroom. The children dressed up in their finest Tudor clothing and enjoyed a range of delicious fresh foods, all washed down with a glass of mead! During their meal, they enjoyed some Tudor music for entertainment and shared some shocking and surprising Tudor facts. 

As part of their Tudor topic, Class 2 have been writing a biography of Henry VIII, they have been fascinated to discover what Henry was like as a young man. In history, they have researched the lives of Henry VIII’s wives and begun to analyse sources of information to decide for themselves whether Anne Boleyn was guilty of her accused crimes. In geography the children have been learning about Tudor London and locating Henry VIII’s many homes on a map.
