Elizabethan England: The Last Tudor Monarch

Year 5

Year 6


SKU: H56IL409001

Who was the last Tudor monarch? In this first lesson, children will learn about the life of Elizabeth I, and how she came to the throne. They will find out about the unrest in the country at the time due to religious differences, and how Elizabeth helped to calm this situation. Children also learn about Elizabeth’s fateful relationship with her cousin, Mary, Queen of Scots. In their independent activities, children use sources to deduce and infer information about the appearance and character of the queen. Alternatively, they write a letter to Elizabeth as Mary, or prepare an imaginary conversation between the two queens.
