Over the next 3 weeks you must complete an activity/series of activities that total at least 15 points. How you choose to do so is up to you! For example, you may just complete the fifteen-point activity or may choose to do one ten and a five-point activity; you could also choose to do three five-point activities – it is completely your choice! Have a look at the activity menu below:

15 points 10 points 5 points
Make a model of the Tower of London. This can be created out of anything you choose.


Design a Tudor snakes and ladders-style board game, with pitfalls and lucky breaks on the way to freedom from the Tower!


Do you have horrible humour? Write some ‘knock-knock’ or ‘what do you call a…?’ jokes about grisly Tudor facts.



Make a Tudor brooch, ring or headdress. Take a photograph of yourself wearing your item in your most stately pose!


Find and copy examples of monarchs’ signatures. Can you create a magnificent, Tudor-style moniker of your own with a signature to match?


  Visit your local library or museum (or both!) and find out about your area in Tudor times. Are there any maps, buildings or artefacts from that era? Create a scrapbook or poster of photos, leaflets and any other information you discover.


Tudor times were a great period of sea voyages and global exploration. Find out the names of some Tudor explorers and the new products they brought home. Be creative in how you record your results.
