Two great activities that would span five lessons about the infamous King of England, Henry VIII (or Henry the Eighth). The activities follows his life, reign, wives and legacy. The resources are perfect for students in Year 3 or Year 4 who are learning about the Tudors, famous Kings and Queens or British History.
NO PREP is needed!
Firstly, there is a reading comprehension activity - children need to read through an informational text, and then answer comprehension and grammar questions, before completing an extension activity.
Secondly, there is a biography writing unit. The unit has been split into four separate lessons which will take students approximately 40-50 minutes each.
Good luck, I hope you get some great results!
