Tudors and stories with historical settings

Discussion in 'Primary' started by jenuk, Aug 28, 2011.

  1. Hi
    Im moving into year 4 in September, first time in key stage 2!!
    Just wondered if anyone had any texts they would recommend for the stories with historical settings literacy unit linked with the Tudors?

    I know there are a few discussions already about this but they seem from a few years ago.

    Any help for this or topic ideas for the Tudors would be gratefully received!!

    Thanks

    :)

    I have just purchased (through school) a series of easy read books for my Y4 (The queens token- Pamela Oldfield, Drake's drummer boy and a couple of Terry Deary ones The prince, the cook and the cunning King, The thief the fool and the big fat king). I intend to use these for basing stories on. Also I am planning to read My friend Walter ( Michael Morpurgo) as a class novel.
     
  3. Thanks I'll have a look into those :)

    https://www.amazon.co.uk/Henry-VIIIs-Privy-Superloo-Flushing/dp/0141320060/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1314558408&sr=1-1

    is a perfect book for year 3/4, especially boys!
     
  5. There are a couple of books by Karen Wallace that the children seem to like - A Pig Called Henry is one but I can't remember the other!
