Trapped in Tudor Times!

Subject: History
Age Group: 7-11 Year Olds (KS2)
Available in London

The time machine is broken and the Time Traveller is stuck in 1500! Will your children be able to enlist the support of a host of Tudor characters to avoid being trapped in Tudor times forever?

Two facilitators visit your school with a small set, props and costumes. The children go on an imaginary journey with the Time Traveller, to travel through the Tudor period and meet a range of characters from the very poor to some very famous individuals.

"The children were very engaged throughout and couldn't stop talking about it! We would definitely book again, without a doubt! Gave the children extra knowledge, and helped with our writing when imagining they were in the Tudor times."
