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

Summer Term: Week 1

This week we’ll be reviewing work from the end of last term. (Edward VI and Mary 1)

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.
