NEW PROGRAMME FOR 2020

Haddon Hall is launching an inspirational new Learning Programme for 2020 with cross-curricular sessions for EYFS and KS 1-4 exploring themes of food & drink, leisure, art, music, health, work and science. KS1-2 living history sessions are hands-on with children dressing up in period costume and experiencing life as a Tudor in our original 16th century kitchens, Medieval Chapel, Great Hall, Elizabethan Long Gallery and gardens. Sessions support the KS1-2 National Curriculum across History, Science, Art, English & Maths and KS3-4 across RE and History. Please click here for KS1-4 options.

Our newly refurbished Gardener’s Cottage provides a base for your class for lunches and there is an option to visit our Gift Shop after your session.

A-level

Early Modern History

Use the Hall as a primary source in historic investigation, such as the Chapel for study of pre and post Reformation life. Explore the evolution of the Hall from the medieval to the Tudor period and discover that the Vernons and Manners were important in national life and knew significant people such as Thomas Cromwell and Mary, Queen of Scots. Search for medieval and Elizabethan graffiti and take part in a short “play” based on historical evidence.

Allow approximately 2 hours for the session.
