The Terrific Tudors!

14 Oct 2021

We have been learning about the Tudors for a few weeks now, and we have loved it! The children have an impressive knowledge of the Tudor period, which we are very proud of. They can tell you all about: the members of the Tudor family; how they came to power; the Kings and Queens who ruled; the Reformation; the regular changes in religion; the impact of these changes; and lots of the punishments. If you get chance, ask the children to tell you something about them! 

Here is our classroom display which shows some of their brilliant work. 
 

 

The children have worked really hard throughout these lessons and have produced some work to be really proud of. They have enjoyed using technology and books to help their with their research, and have loved being able to work with their peers once again. Here are some photos of them hard at work.

Henry VIII is one of the most famous Kings in history. Partly because of his 6 wives, but also because of the Reformation and the formation of the Church of England, which our School belongs to today. We began by looking at his reign up to 1533 when he decided he wanted to divorce his first wife, Catherine of Aragon, and the Pope said no.

When the Pope refused to grant Henry a divorce, he went ahead and married Anne Boleyn anyway and divorced Catherine of Aragon. This lead to the Pope excommunicating Henry from the Catholic Church. It was then decided that he would start the Church of England, and that he, the King, would be the head of it. We looked at home life changed after the Reformation,

When Henry VIII died, his only son Edward VI became King at just 9 years old. He sadly died at the age of 15, and before he died he was desperate that his sister, Mary I, didn't succeed him to the throne. He tried to alter the line of succession which lead to Lady Jane Grey being Queen for 9 days, but was ultimately unsuccessful when Mary I overthrough Lady Jane Grey and took the throne. Here is our research on Edward VI, the child King.

Mary I was a Catholic and she followed her brother Edward, a protestant, to the throne. This lead to many changes that were made by Mary. She gained the nickname 'Bloody Mary' and we discovered why.

We have gone on to learn about what happened when Elizabeth I, a protestant, took the throne after her sister Mary I died. We have learnt about many of the exciting aspects of the Elizabethan era.
