The Terrific Tudors

This term we will be finding out all about those terrible ……Oh!  We mean TERRIFIC Tudors.  Although, the Tudors have a reputation for lots of beheadings and weddings, in fact their legacy goes much further.  We will be exploring how the Tudors changed the religion of the country and the discoveries they made.  At the end of the topic, we will celebrate our learning by using our knowledge to take part in a Tudor S=P+A+C+E Day, complete with costumes and drama.
