cross curricular Shakespeare now Tudors have gone?

    Hi all,

    we teach a themed curriculum and I love delivering my Shakespeare unit to year 5 and 6, but in the past I have linked this with History to work on the Tudors but now that Tudors are out does anyone have suggestions on hist/geog links I can make? could I still do Tudor explorers and Spanish Armada as 'significant British event?'

    I would count the Armada as a "significant turning point in British History"! I would however focus less on the explorers and more on the impact of the Armada/religious divisions etc. Are you anywhere near Stratford? If so, it could also count as a local history topic.

    Where have the Tudors gone?!! What's more significant (***!) than the break with Rome?

    How about Macbeth and James 1? *

    * Very sorry for intruding! I am a) not primary and b) no longer a teacher! :D

    Thanks Carrie - I'm going to have to do some swotting up now - we're in Lancashire, so not close enough for stratford.

    GLsghost - that's a good point - could explore that link a little more

    thank you both

    Remember the NC is minimum content there's nothing to stop you coving the Tudors as long as you also cover stat bits.

    Study Henry V and have Agincourt as the significant event.
    Or do The Tempest and link to geography and RE.
    Or just study the plays as a literacy unit?
    Or run a Shakespeare club?
