The Tudors and Stuarts. This month’s featured theme is the engaging topic of The Tudors (1485-1603) and Stewarts (1603-1714). The study of this period in history, along with its kings and queens, has always proved to be a favourite with children and we have over 60 fabulous Tudor and Stuart themed websites on offer.
Together, the resources cover Tudor and Stuart: royalty, history, life, religion, exploration and much more besides. The theme also includes famous historic events such as the Great Fire of London, The Spanish Armada, The Civil War and more. Famous people of the period are also explored, including: the kings and queens, Samuel Pepys, Oliver Cromwell, and Shakespeare to name a few.
As always, the resources comprise of a mixture of: information, facts, research, hands-on activities, timelines, illustrations, audio and video clips, as well as some detailed planning – each of which will effectively support this extremely interesting and very wide-ranging theme.

We also have some really useful Harvest Festival resources for you!
Harvest Festival is nearly upon us! It is a time when farmers and others give thanks for a successful harvest. In the past, large meals were shared among family and friends but in more recent times, the festival has become more about sharing with those less fortunate than ourselves, or raising funds for worthy causes. Many schools celebrate Harvest Festival. In addition to our great themed resources above, why not make use of our dozen really useful Harvest Festival resources? Click here to view them.
The featured theme is updated monthly during the school year. Watch out for our terrific ‘Famous People’ resources coming in October 2017!
