Royals in Reading: Outdoor session exploring local history
This session gives children the opportunity to explore history through direct experience outside in Reading’s newly conserved Abbey Ruins. They will discover how Reading was formed through the influence of significant figures such as Henry l, Henry Vlll and Elizabeth ll. Learn how their power struggle with the Church affected the lives of ordinary people in Reading. Through this interactive session children will work with and handle real medieval abbey artefacts, dress up in replica costume and take part in role play activities.
We recommend booking Royals in Reading in combination with our Bayeux Tapestry session.
The children enjoyed discussing artefacts and handling them.
