Special mention from BETT Award judges for The Tudors in London - "highly commended"

Cloisters
The prestigious BETT Awards were announced last week during the world-leading education-technology exhibition The BETT Show. The London Grid for Learning was delighted to be a finalist in three separate categories and to be recognised as producing the highest-quality learning resources for connected schools; increasingly, schools are looking for unique content that cannot be found elsewhere, and the LGfL portfolio of internally produced content is growing accordingly.
 
On the evening, there was no repeat of 2014, when LGfL's History of Computing won an award, but the quality of the competition was exceptionally high, as always. Despite not winning, the Tudors in London received special mention from the judges as "highly commended". This only happened in three categories, so it is a valuable recognition of the quality of the resource.

The Tudor period is highly relevant to the new National Curriculum across all Key Stages (e.g. "local history study"), and not just at Primary level. The resource also targets literacy at KS3 and KS4 and has a wealth of content and lesson plans for this area. In fact, eight subject areas are covered across four Key Stages! The resource aims to develop an understanding of a historical context in which to appreciate how events of 500 years ago still impact London life today.
