Topic

This week we will be exploring the famous human landmark – The Tower of London. Using the internet find out the answers to the following questions:

  • Where is the Tower of London?
  • When was it built?
  • What has it been used for?
  • What is it used for now?

You can use Google to search for the information and watch the following video – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h6iUU9wbM3k

Once you have the information, can you create a visitor’s guide or poster for The Tower of London? You may want to persuade (encourage) people to visit the tower. Then, create a timeline showing what the Tower has been used for over the years.

Finally, complete The Traitor’s Gate comprehension. https://www.greyfriars.academy/wp-content/uploads/2020/11/Traitors-Gate-Comprehension.pdf Can you find all the answers in the text?

Have a great week,

Mrs Moyle
