Henry VIII wasn’t always a fat, old tyrant! This classroom-based drama session challenges the traditional stereotype of this iconic monarch, plotting his life from his early reign through to his final years as king.
Through taking part in drama activities, pupils will find out about key changes in Henry’s life that shaped him both as a monarch and a man.
This session especially focuses on the changing role of a monarch through drama, enabling pupils to understand that performance can be a tool for understanding by putting themselves in someone else’s shoes.
