about this session
Key stage 3 | Subject: History | Topics: Tudors | Session type: Route-based
In the Tudor period, religion was a hotbed of revolution. The rollercoaster of religious changes led to widespread confusion and turmoil, impacting both the royal family and their subjects.
This session has been especially adapted for students with moderate learning difficulties and is delivered by an SEN-trained presenter. Students will explore primary evidence from the buildings of Hampton Court Palace. They will analyse the impact of changes in religion during the period of King Henry VIII and Queen Mary I in one of the key locations where religious and political decisions were made.
- Understand that Tudor Monarchs were either Catholic or Protestant
- Analyse the impact this would have had on someone of a different religion to the current monarch
- See how these constant changes are reflected in the architecture and art of Hampton Court Palace
