    Looks great! Only just downloaded but can already see loads of uses not just for the Tudors topic, but for many others as well! Teeny tiny criticism is that it could do with a little bit more detail of HOW to use the apps for any less tech savvy readers, but for the price and the usefulness of the ideas, that is a tiny quibble. Looking forward to trialling and sharing with my colleagues!
  • Fantastic resource by an inspirational practitioner!

    This is yet another fantastic resource by a fantastic practitioner. I will certainly be using this in the run up to Christmas with my digital leaders and introducing it to staff at my school as well as the schools I work with during the coming months! Can't wait for the next!
  • Great resource

    Really useful ideas , which could be adapted to other topics. Covers a range of skills. Looking forward to teaching the Tudors with this.
  • Full of adaptability!

    This is a great find! Whilst Tudors is no longer a primary topic, these fantastic ideas could be used for Romans, Anglo-Saxons and many other topics, not just history! The apps suggested are appropriate and the inspiration and technical practicality is great for one iPad classes as well as multiple iPad classes. As a computing coordinator, I am really looking forward to sharing some of this good practice with my colleagues.
  • Must have resource!

    A great guide to combining the history skills of the new curriculum with other essential elements including English and computing. Each session hits a variety of learning objectives. The skills demonstrated are easy to adapt to your topic choice and are exciting! As always a great resource for teachers who want to truly engage and enthuse their pupils! Top marks Mr P!
  • Great ideas for use in a variety of topics.

    Over the past year or so Lee has provided myself (and I'm sure 100s of other teachers) with some fantastic ideas for creative use of iPads via his blog, Twitter feed and presentations. I'm delighted that he is now sharing those ideas in the the form of iBooks and this book really is one of the best ways that you can spend 19 pennies! The Tudors merely act as an example stimulus, as almost all of the activities could be used in a variety of curriculum topics. An essential purchase for anyone using iPads in Primary Schools. Well done Lee, a fantastic publication. Martin Bailey (Animate 2 Educate Ltd)
