This site is designed to be an interactive learning tool for children at KS2, not a mass of information. For aspects of the Mary Rose that are not covered here, please refer to the main site and to the extensive KS2 site, The Learning City.
The site can be used independently by the learner so they can pick and choose from the menu, exploring the Mary Rose as they browse the site. However, it has been designed so as to allow teachers to structure the approach pupils take in order to meet the learning objectives of the KS2 programme of study.
"Explore the Mary Rose" is designed to encourage pupils to do two things: to do their own research, and to work from evidence. They can find out for themselves about one member of the crew and his life on board, and discover the main facts about the history and archaeology of the ship. Using the knowledge gained in this way, they can then look more closely at photographs of the artefacts and, working from them, start to draw their own conclusions from the evidence available.
Finally, there are pages of questions of activities that are down-loadable
resources for pupils to use to reinforce their learning, communicate their
knowledge, and demonstrate to you what they have learnt online.
All the activities listed in the Outcome column can be found in the 'How much have you learnt' section unless stated otherwise
