Prime Learning Challenge Question

                                                  Subsidiary Learning Challenge Questions:
                                                Who were the Roundheads and the Cavaliers?
                                              Was Oliver Cromwell right to stop the monarchy?

          Why do some people think that the Great Fire was one of the best things that happened to London?
                          Who was Samuel Pepys and would he have been a modern day blogger?
Recreate  the Great Fire of London in an artistic way.

This is our second learning challenge in Year 6. This historical based study of British history will extend the children’s understanding of the beheading of Charles 1st, the Civil War and the Great Fire of London. 

To help them to gain a better understanding of these times they could research the life and times of Stuart Britain, the British Civil War and the beginnings of Parliament and the Politicians and politics of this era.

Children will be drawing timelines of the events thinking about, famous people, weaponry, transport and health care during this era.

They will research a person from this time period thinking about what influences they had on the country we live in today. 

Useful books to read:

 Tudors and Stuarts

  • From battles and beheadings, to plots and plague, this book tells the story of life in Britain under the Tudors and Stuarts.
  • Full of intriguing facts, illustrations, detailed reconstructions, paintings and maps.

The Slimy Stuarts

Readers can discover all the foul facts about the SLIMY STUARTS, including why some slimy Stuarts ate toads, snails and fleas, which king picked his nose and never washed his hands and why people wore fish on their feet (bleeugh!).
