Through the Door - Into a Tudor House
The context of this project is to introduce students to the lives of the Paston family and to place their accomplishments within the wider story of English history. The Tudor house used for this purpose is fictional, but is closely based on Oxnead Hall, which for several centuries was a family home of the Pastons.
We're putting together on this page a range of classroom resources, trialled in the upper years of primary education. The Teacher's Handbook provides the background details and lesson guidance; other folders contain materials you might need and information on further resources. You'll also find throughout this website materials for use - and other elements of the Paston story which you might like to develop for classroom use.
