Mathematical Mayhem at the Palace

About this session

Key Stage 2 | Subject: Maths, History, English | Topics: Tudors | Session Type: Route-based, Classroom-based

Meet a member of the Tudor household and solve a real life Tudor maths problem!

Led by a costumed presenter, pupils are taken through the Tudor route at Hampton Court finding out about the daily lives of both servants and nobility in the Tudor household of King Henry VIII whilst solving maths problems along the way.

Pitched at a mixed ability level, pupils will have the opportunity to extend their maths skills further through group work and individual challenges.

This session is based partly on route and partly in the classroom.
