Unit 1 The Tudors

Textbook Reference:KS3 History:Study Guide: Pages 12-16; History:Revise KS3 : Pages 43 - 61

Lesson 1 examines why the Tudor line emerged and how Henry VII managed to gain and keep power.

Next we look at Henry VIII and his famous wives!

We look briefly at King Edward and Queen Mary before looking at the way in which Queen Elizabeth uses spin to tell her subjects about what she wants them to think of her!

Then there are 2 lessons about Tudor exploration of the world by sea and one about the role of the Tower of London in Tudor times.

Finally a look at people’s lives in Tudor times – a chance for you guys to research different aspects of how they lived.

Why did the happy, cheerful, clever athletic Henry become such a miserable mean old man?

http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/this-britain/the-jousting-accident-that-turned-henry-viii-into-a-tyrant-1670421.html

It would appear, according to recent research to have been down to a bump on the head!

Henry VIII became the tyrannical monster remembered by history because of a personality change following a serious jousting accident in which he was knocked out and may well have received a brain injury.

After the accident – just before he became estranged from the second of his six wives, Anne Boleyn – the king, once sporty and generous, became cruel, vicious and paranoid (this means he thought everyone was out to get him), his subjects began talking about him in a new way, and the turnover of his wives speeded up.

The accident occurred at a tournament at Greenwich Palace on 24 January 1536 when 44-year-old Henry, in full armour, was thrown from his horse, itself armoured, which then fell on top of him. He was unconscious for two hours and was thought at first to have been fatally injured.

But, although he recovered, his jousting career was over and he suffered from leg ulcers which often made movement difficult. Henry when sporty and active, has a good appetite, which he did not reduce when he stopped. The result was rapid weight gain. Look at the measurements of his armour :

He was 185cm tall – a big chap!. In his 20s his waist was 80cm but by the time he was in his 50s it was 135cm! By the time he died he weight about 180Kg!

Unit: U1E Title: The Russian campaign Date: 9 Oct 2009

A straightfoward and hopefully enjoyable homework this week.
With any luck you will see on the attached sheet several You Tube references to Napoleon's campaign against Russia
and Hitler's Operation Barbarossa.
I would like you to watch them and explore others as you wish.
Then ask yourself:
Why did both Napoleon and Hitler fail in Russia? Personality disorder by this time? Poor planning? Arrogance? Fighting on two fronts? Poor understanding of a foreign territory? Weather? What?
Also ask yourself how had warfare changed in this time? Were there things that were similar? Or had everything completely changed in terms of warfare by this time? What were the differences?
Please jot down some notes, only in rough form, and send them to me outlining your thoughts on the subject IN TIME FOR NEXT WEEK.
