Updated 2015: This page has been refreshed in 2015 and new links added. I am happy to receive suggestions of Tudor resources, activities, projects and links that are appropriate to the page.
General Info on Henry and the Tudors for background
Tudor Britain – an interactive site full of information from the V&A.
Tudor History – beautiful site with fabulous information and gorgeous artwork and photos.
English History – another site by someone passionate about their history. Quite beautiful.
Henry and the Tudors– this has lots of facts (toilet ones especially) to appeal to kids – and a particularly spectacular (!) beheading sequence!
Tower of London Resources – explore the learning pages for information on the Tudors and their relationship with the Tower.
National Curriculum – want to know where the Tudors fit into the 2013 update to the history curriculum? Find out here.
History on the Net – great info and if you are anxious about the NC it does have link ups to what is studied within that.
Royal Govt Site – family trees, individual stories… all you need from them who know!
Britannica – timelines, biographies and more. They also have links with Pitkin Guides, which i can really recommend as simple handbooks.
Primary Homework Help – essential facts and starting points.
Super Brainy Beans – further links to other great Tudors for Kids websites.
Tudor Teaching Ideas – lots of useful files and templates for projects.
BBC Costume Game – really good game where you fit the clothing item to the period mannequin
(I need suggestions for this section)
Other Useful Links
Heraldry and Castles at OwlMouse plus a variety of other medieval games and activities.
The Mary Rose – oh dear – I remember this being raised when I was about 9 – I can still remember Mrs McCain Whitney (I kid you not! Guess the nickname anyone?) gasping with horror as it slipped in its cradle. There are also Mary Rose worksheets and printable models.
Pomanders at Make Stuff – keep out the smells of those unwashed bodies with an orange and cloves pomander.
Find ideas and buy ingredients at ComfyCraftCreations. Keeping good smells near you was supposed to protect you from disease.
Lots of great and really original Tudor craft ideas for making as part of a Tudor project.
