One of the projects we worked on as part of our first year working with Billesley Primary School. We spent a few days in school working with Year 4 on their Tudor topic. The ultimate aim was to create a Tudor themed board game which could be used in subsequent years to help teach the subject or to consolidate knowledge. We created a timeline in the playground to help visualise the the point in history where the Tudor period comes; we recreated the Tudor family tree using name cards and string, we explored exploration and navigation and researched different aspects of Tudor life.

We also discussed the features of different board games and the pupils had a go at making their own Tudor themed games. We then combined their ideas to create one game - a picture of which you can see at the top of this page - which is a cross between Monopoly and The Great Game of Britain.
