Heritage Education – Shakespeare’s Warwickshire

A special half day project for KS2 based at Priory House, Warwick.

This session meets the requirement for a Local History study and a study of an aspect or theme in British history that extends pupils’ chronological knowledge beyond 1066. It is also applicable for children studying Shakespeare in literacy.

  • Finding out what people ate, how they cooked, what they had in their houses and how they looked after their health.
  • Looking at what evidence exists for finding out about life in Shakespeare’s time.
  • Having a go at writing some of Shakespeare’s words using Tudor handwriting with a quill and ink.
