The Tower of London launches new Key Stage 3 History experience

Date Posted: 17/07/2015

The Tower of London has created a new History-linked activity for Key Stage 3 called Royals, Rogues and Ravens.

A pack of 16 playing cards is at the centre of the experience, which has been designed to help students direct their own tour of the tower.

Each card features the details of a fictional character from history, such as the conqueror, the sorcerer and the thief.

Students have to follow a trail around the tower to find out more about each character.

The cards cost £2 per pack and have been designed to be used by a team of three students.

The resource has been created to facilitate group discussions and change the way pupils engage with heritage.  

All packs must be ordered in advance.
