The Tudors: History | Tudor Clothes
This engaging Tudor Clothes KS2 History lessons gives your Year 3/4 class the chance to explore Tudor fashion and compare it to the clothes we wear today. The included slideshow for the teaching input looks at some Tudor portraits to explore what kind of clothes the Tudor wore, and how rich and poor Tudor clothes were different. They'll find out the names of some of the garments Tudors wore that are no longer familiar, such as a kirtle, doublet and hose, as well as identifying common colours, styles and embellishments used in Tudor clothes.
During their independent learning activities, they can then either have fun dressing up paper dolls in Tudor fashion, identify the differences between modern and Tudor clothing, or design their own Tudor outfits!
