LIVING HISTORY HATFIELD
Key Stages 1 & 2
A typical day may look like this:
Before morning break: 45 minutes with Sir Walter Raleigh who will introduce the day and briefly look at the importance of Court before looking at privateers, explorers and the Armada.
After morning break: 45 minutes with Thomas Phelippes one of the Queen's more nafarious spy masters who will enlist the pupils' help in breaking a cypher that has been intercepted before preparing them for their audience with Her Majesty
After lunch: 1 hour with the Queen, with the two courtiers in attendance. The Queen will talk about the events of her life and will be happy to answer any questions that the pupils may have. She may invite them to sing along with her to raise her spirits and might even suggest a dance to end the day (both of these of course are subject to your individual Covid precautions).
Alternatively a half day session is also possible with the Queen and Sir Walter. Again this is totally flexible and adaptable to your specific requirements.
The aim of the visit by Elizabeth I is to provide an insight into what life was
like at her court and open a window into the thoughts and emotions behind
the events and decisions of her reign. It is broadly based but can easily be
tailored to fit your individual learning requirements.
Please contact us for further details or to discuss your ideas.
