Latest News Article: LGfL launches the Tudors in London!
The Tudors in London 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.
Featuring over 140 high-quality videos clips and over 60 high-resolution images from the Museum of London Archaeological Archive, Royal Collection Trust and key Tudor locations in London, the extensive digital collection is further enhanced by a framework of curriculum-linked material. Lesson plans suggest classroom-based activities to help teachers make the most of the wide range of resources within the historical archive.
High quality video resources include:
High resolution images
• Re-enactment of the eve of the marriage of Kathryn Parr to Henry VIII
• The major Tudor remains including Hampton Court Palace, the Rose Theatre, Charterhouse and on the streets of the City of London
• Replicas and real artefacts uncovered from archaeological discoveries in London
• High resolution photographs courtesy of Museum of London Picture Library and Museum of London Archaeology
• Reconstructions of what Tudor London might have looked like, maps and images of artefacts courtesy of Museum of London Picture Library and the Royal Collection Trust
The resource is designed to be used both as a class teaching tool and in an individual learner context. The structure of support material is specifically designed to meet the needs of History teachers working with Key Stage 2 pupils. It is recognised that in the next few years, many non-specialist teachers will be required to deliver the History curriculum in a wide variety of contexts as they adapt to the revised National Curriculum. It is for these teachers that detailed lesson plans are provided, offering a complete support package to maximise the benefit of this digital collection.
However, the resource is equally designed to be of great value to the subject specialist, who may wish to use it in a disaggregated way. The availability of video embed codes and downloadable high-resolution images allows teachers who are familiar with learning platforms to enhance the material further by creating their own online learning pathways.
