The medieval Church and Tudor Reformation

This lively trail covers the history of the Church during the medieval period. Through a range of hands-on activities pupils learn about the Tudor Reformation and how the different Tudor monarchs shaped the religion of the time according to their beliefs.

Give your pupils the opportunity to:

  • Dress up as Tudor monarchs or priests. Pupils really love this aspect of the session which brings their learning to life!
  • Recall prior learning about the Tudors and learn about the religious beliefs of the different Tudor monarchs.
  • Learn to chant some of the Latin Mass in the medieval Quire stalls, and compare the English version.
  • Compare and contrast the Catholic and Protestant worldviews of the time.
  • Consider the impact that religion had on the people of medieval Manchester and how this has shaped the building that we see today.
