Our project for terms 3 & 4 is The Terrible Tudors!

Who were the Tudors? The Tudors are one of the most famous families ever to rule England. They first came to power on 22nd August 1485 after Richard III was defeated at the Battle of Bosworth by Henry Tudor. Richard was the last king of England to die in battle and not only signalled the end of the medieval era and the beginning of modern history but the Wars of the Roses had come to an end when Henry VII married Elizabeth of York.

They were in power from 1485 when Henry Tudor was crowned King Henry VII, until the time Queen Elizabeth I died, without an heir, in 1603.


The Terrible Tudors


Tudor Portraits

In English lessons we base all our writing around a book. For term 3 we have chosen a book linked to our project of The Tudors.


The book that we are studying is called - Treason by Berlie Doherty

It is set in England 1539 during the reign of Henry VIII.

When Will's father is accused of treason and thrown into Newgate Prison, he has to go into hiding in the back streets of London. He is befriended by a poor boy, Nick Drew, and together they brave imprisonment and death as they desperately try to gain pardon for Will's father.







Children's writing based on character's from the book - Tom's Midnight Garden
