A Royal Tudor Christening

About this session

Key Stage 1 | Subject: History, English (spoken language) | Topics:Tudors | Session Type: Route-based, Classroom-based

It’s 1537 and King Henry VIII’s baby son Edward is soon to be christened at Hampton Court.

The palace is a hive of activity as servants and courtiers prepare for the celebrated event. 

Led by a costumed presenter, this session encourages pupils to think about the preparations that would have taken place in the lead up to the royal christening.

Based partly in the classroom and partly on-route in the Tudor state apartments, the session uses objects to encourage pupils to find out about Tudor courtly celebrations.
