We’ll start this week’s lesson by looking at a presentation by Mr Millward-Hopkins entitled, “Elizabeth’s problems“. As its an interactive presentation with a task sheet for students,(from Mr Jones) its best downloaded as a PowerPoint presentation. You might wish to view more hisory resources from SchoolHistory.co.uk.
- We’ll follow this with a discussion and a look at excellent content from www.historyonthenet.com, specifically the content on: Elizabeth’s Life, Official Portraits of Elizabeth 1, Discoverers and Explorers of the time and The Spanish Armada.
Homework is referenced on the plannerLIVE link to the right of this blog entry.
I thought students might find this article interesting, there is a suggestion that hair in a locket of Mary 1 could be used for an attempt to match the DNA to the bones found in the Tower of London.
Students should remember to have letters for the History trip signed and returned to me as soon as possible.
