Divorced, Beheaded, Died: Divorced, Beheaded, Survived


I welcome you back dearest Students and hope you have had a wonderful break...

This half term you will be learning all about The Tudors and Henry VIII. 

Make sure you are doing lots of research to help you stand out in class!


I hope that you are looking forward to our visit to Temple Newsam on Thursday 4th January... Let's launch our Tudor topic and go ready to do lots of learning and finding out...

What we already know about Tudor times:


Saif - Henry VIII had six wives. One was called Catherine Howard and another was called Catherine of Aragon. One was called Anne Boleyn.


Abdullah - If you were a rich Tudor you would have worn black clothes and if you were a poor Tudor and tried to wear black, you would have been beheaded.


Laaibah - If you were a poor Tudor and you ripped your clothes, you couldn't go out and buy new ones. Therefore you had to mend them yourselves.


Ruquyyah - Elizabeth I was so powerful that when she put sugar on her teeth, the others would follow her and copy.
