In KS2 our pupils have been learning about The Tudors and as their knowledge of this chapter in history has deepened, so too has their ability to demonstrate accurate historical knowledge across the curriculum. In Red Kites, for example, after researching Henry VIII and his six wives, the children wrote playscripts and created shadow puppets. They then performed their puppet show to the whole school, parents and governors and demonstrated their ability to write a variety of texts across the curriculum. The children have enjoyed learning about The Tudors so much they have relished the opportunity to extend their knowledge further and a trip to Samlesbury Hall, Preston, extended learning beyond the classroom.
