Tudor Topic: Henry VIII's Wives Performance Poetry
'The Tudors,' history topic is used as a means of providing a setting for performance poetry, ( the resource contains an example of a poem with rhyme, syllable count patterns and rhythm and a mini tool-kit.) The resource starts with Henry VIII's first wife; Catherine of Aragon and contains factual information about their marriage leading onto his next wife. The poem example contains a chorus too. The resource can be used as an innovation or as an excellent example for the children to analyse and use to write their own version. They then can plan and write 6 chronologically 'wife' verses or it can be done as a class compilation (choosing verses written by different individuals / pairs .)
