Henry's Hull


This resource has been designed to allow KS1 and 2 teachers and pupils to see Tudor Hull through Henry VIIIís eyes using original documents. It is designed to support current curriculum developments in thematic and skills-based learning and will help students.

Teachers may wish to include in their study a visit to the Hull History Centre for a ĎHenryís Hullí session which takes the pupils on an interactive journey of discovery of Tudor Hull; tracking the journey and outcomes of the Pilgrimage of Grace through activities, practicing reading and writing Tudor-style and allowing them to view original documents behind the scenes.

The resource serves as a useful activity to prepare for a visit to this session.  Pupils can also take part in the O nline Quiz, Are You Like Henry? (see Quiz link on left) to test if they have a similar personality and interests.
