Planning for teaching Life in Tudor times at KS2

As you know, the requirement to study Life in Tudor Britain was mysteriously and inexplicably removed from the Key Stage 2 curriculum in 2014. As one of the best-taught and popular of all the history topics that pupils study at junior school, the Tudors should still continue being taught, in my opinion. For this reason we are including a fully-developed planner just as if it were a compulsory topic. This means that there is a clear focus on developing historical skills and conceptual understanding as well as deepening historical knowledge. You will find that three concepts are given priority: causation; characteristic features of society and analysis of sources. Each has two key questions devoted to them, usually one from the first half of the century and the other from the latter. This has the great advantage of giving you an opportunity to feedback to pupils the sort of ideas that can then be put into practice later in the topic.
