This learning journey has been designed to allow KS1 and 2 teachers and pupils to see Tudor Hull through Henry VIII’s 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 ‘Henry’s Hull’ 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 learning journey 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.
