Leeds Castle and the new National Curriculum
Leeds Castle has over a thousand years of history, so why not come and visit us for your Local History studies; did you know King Henry VIII stayed here in 1520? An updated workshop entitled ‘Party in the Park’ looks at this significant event.
In 2015 we will be launching our new workshop entitled ‘From Cave to Castle’, an interactive session for KS2 pupils covering the Hunter Gatherer period right through to 1066. A timeline in drama and fun!
Whether your pupils are early learners, KS1, KS2, KS3, KS4 or adult learners, and whatever you are studying, Leeds Castle can provide a session, workshop, talk, tour or written resource. If you have any special requirements please contact the Education Manager on 01622 767865 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
