Need a Tudor?
During this learning experience, we will be learning about the Tudors with a focus on Henry VIII and changes he made when he was King of England. This learning experience will be a combination of history and English and we will be applying our historical knowledge to write Henry VIII diary entries.
We went on a trip to Leeds Castle to learn about who the Tudors were. We also learnt all about Henry VIII and the famous Fields of Cloth of Gold festival. You can see some pictures below.
Below you can see some of our Henry VIII diary entries about the time when Henry visited France for the Field of Cloth of Gold Festival. The children have really got into the character of Henry VIII and the rivalry between him and the King of France - Francis I. To help make their diaries more authentic, they tea-stained paper and have written their work up using handwriting pen.
