Battle of Bosworth Film & Maths Resources

Posted in Uncategorized on April 30, 2013 by Mr Davy

Over the coming weeks, Year 4 will be investigating the Battle of Bosworth, where Henry VIII defeated Richard III and became the first Tudor King. Drawing on this information, the children will plan and act out the battle which we’ll film.

Here’s a film the current Year 6 made about another battle in the Wars of The Roses, The Battle of Barnet.

Investigate the Battle by clicking the links and playing the simulator game to read about the different armies and possible outcomes.
