Moments In Time

The overarching theme for this term called Moments In Time and will provide the children with the opportunity to learn more about British history. 


This project teaches children about the English and British monarchy from AD 871 to the present day. Using timelines, information about royal palaces, portraits and other historical sources, the children will build up an understanding of the monarchs and then research six of the most significant sovereigns.  

  • Monarchy in the United Kingdom
  • Royal residences
  • Royal portraits
  • Six significant sovereigns (Alfred the Great, William the Conqueror, Henry VIII, Elizabeth I, Queen Victoria and Queen Elizabeth II). 


What sort of man would order the beheading of his wife? Was she really that bad? Travel back in time to the 1500s and meet the terrifying Tudors, a domineering dynasty that changed our history. Discover an opulent court where dancing and singing goes hand in hand with swift falls from favour, and even swifter falling of heads. Develop your painting skills in miniature, solve riddles and remember to protect your precious neck with a large white ruff, if you want to survive at Tudor court. Flex your detective muscles and become a criminal investigator. Will you find out the facts or will the evidence from the past bemuse you? How will you find the accused, innocent or guilty? It’s your turn to take part in one of the most famous trials that the world has ever known.
