This whole day session is a unique opportunity for Key Stage 3 students to follow in the footsteps of King Charles I through his trial, sentencing and execution.
To Kill A King is a FREE opportunity for your school to tour the public areas of the Houses of Parliament and take part in a special, topical education session.
Students will start the day in the Palace of Westminster where they will explore the context for the trial by assembling the case for the prosecution. With their arguments ready they will try the king in Westminster Hall, the location of the actual trial, before passing sentence.
In the afternoon the action will move to Banqueting House, the location of the king’s execution, where students will explore the monarch’s point of view and be able to question King Charles I further.
The day is designed to be a memorable introduction and uses source material, unique access to historic locations and costumed interpreters to bring the topic to life. No prior work or knowledge will be assumed.
