Alongside using this resource, teachers can also make use of the fantastic Audio Network which features a range of tracks that can be used to support your teaching of The Tudors including GreenSleeves and Cloth of Gold. The tracks can be used as a background to presentations, or to listen to and compare with music today and they could also be used within dance lessons.
When teaching The Tudors, a lot of teachers also choose to study Shakespeare alongside this topic. LGfL have a range of resources to support with this.

The Museum of London are running a Tudor London Study day for KS3 students in the spring term next year. The session will cover the following:
It’s 1529 in Tudor London and Henry VIII’s break from the church and divorce from Catherine of Aragon is imminent. Explore our Medieval London gallery and handle real objects to investigate what London life was like at this critical time.
You’ll meet imposing Tudor monarch, Henry VIII, in this performance. Participate as a member of his court - and dare to advise him on the complex issues surrounding his break from the church...
You can find out more about the session and to book here.
