Colonel Blood and the Crown Jewels

About this session

SEND (Special Educational Needs and Disabilities) | Subject: History | Topics: Stuarts | Session Type: Object-Handling

What was life like at the Tower during the reign of King Charles II?  Who was Colonel Blood? Why did he do what he did?

This interactive session enables pupils to explore the real life story of the attempted theft of the crown jewels by Colonel Blood in 1671.

Through multi-sensory learning, pupils will find out about the events leading up to this astounding but little-known event.

This session is based partly in a classroom and partly on route in the palace. It will provide pupils with the opportunity to explore new environments and to develop their social and emotional skills through:

• Rhymes and songs about the palace. 
• Object handling.
• Dancing and games.
• Drama and role play.

This session is suitable for pupils with MLD and SLD, aged between 6 and 16 years, who attend special schools or units.

You will also have the opportunity to make a request for the presenter to be in costume, should this be appropriate.
