This fun and informative Henry VIII KS2 History scheme of work will introduce your Year 3 or Year 4 class to one of the most famous monarchs in British history...along with his equally famous six wives. Through ready-to-teach lessons, your children will learn the story of Henry VIII and his wives, right from the Battle of Bosworth where his father seized the crown all through Henry VIII's long reign and his six marriages.

Along the way, your class will use a variety of historical sources to find out what Henry VIII was like both as a king and a man, debate his choices and motivations, and learn about the often ill-fated lives of the six women he married.

This Henry VIII lesson plan pack provides everything you need to deliver an outstanding History scheme of work to your KS2 children. There is an easy-to-follow lesson plan for each of the seven lessons, along with a slideshow for each of the whole-class teaching inputs, differentiated activities, and a range of printable resources, such as worksheets, picture cards, information sheets and quizzes. By the end of the scheme of work, your class will be able to confidently answer the question, 'Why did Henry VIII marry six times?'
