Key Stage 2 | Subject: History | Topics: Tudors, Crime and Punishment | Session Type: Digital Mission
It's 1611 and William Seymour has been imprisoned in the Tower. Help William Seymour's loyal wife Arbella try and free him. She is under house arrest so desperately needs Time Explorers to assist her plot.
You will need to work out where William is held, how tough the Tower’s defences are and what seemingly innocent items William could use in his escape. Be careful! If the guards get suspicious, Arbella might never see her husband again.

About Digital missions
Digital missions are character-led adventures that encourage pupils to navigate and observe the palace spaces while solving challenges on an iPad.
Pupils are encouraged to use the palace as a primary source to weigh historical evidence. Working as part of a team, they will develop their perspective and judgement by exploring particular palace spaces in more detail.
Please note that this session is only partly facilitated. Groups will be given instructions at the start of the session and issued with one iPad between two pupils. The mission is designed to be self-led and supervised by group leaders.
