Year 5

Year 6


SKU: H56IL409006

What did the Elizabethans do for fun? In this lesson, children find out about the wide range of leisure activities for both the rich and poor in the Elizabethan era, and are encouraged to share their opinions on these activities. In their independent work, children use this knowledge to suggest appropriate activities for different Elizabethans. Or, in the alternative activity, children find out more about what a trip to an Elizabethan theatre was like, and use hot-seating to explore the viewpoints of the different audience members, as well as the actors.
