Betsi is set in a busy Tudor city. Betsi's travels will set children's imaginations buzzing as she visits many locations. Betsi listens to conversations, visits numerous tradefolk, inspects various lodgings and even watches a famous play!

Also included is a set of useful printable resource sheets which contain 200 questions on the Tudors (linked to the program).

Betsi assists with the development of several of the required Key Elements as specified in the National Curriculum for History at Key Stage 2 - 8) British history; 10) Britain and the wider world in Tudor times.
