Historians Dr Penelope Harnett and Dr Michael Riley, assess and critique Deputy Head Simon Botten's methods of teaching his Year 5 class about the wives of Henry VIII, as profiled in The Tudors using ICT 1. The lesson was not only ambitious in concept but also had to be achieved within a strict deadline of one hour. Whilst the experts support much of the idea behind the lesson, they question whether the timeframe and use of ICT distracted the children from the historical facts. Interesting questions are raised about curriculum balance and support and discussed by the panel.
