072 – Home learning – Research on the Princes in the Tower

Hi everyone,

Over half-term I would like you to do some research on the Princes in the Tower, in preparation for your Speaking and Listening assessment.

For this assessment, you will be having a debate: did Margaret Beaufort or Richard III kill the princes?

I have split you up according to your colour groups:

Glen, Lucy P. & Max’s table: you will be arguing that Margaret Beaufort killed them

Annalise & Harry T’s table: you will be arguing that Richard III killed them

Find out why Margaret or Richard might have wanted to kill the princes. Bring your research along to the first lesson back after half term (Monday 2nd June).

Have a good holiday

    The “Princes in the tower” were Edward and Richard. The two boys were the children of the current king at the time Edward V. One day Edward V mysteriously died and the princes were locked away in the Tower of London by either Richard III or Margaret Beaufort, Henry Tudor’s mother. Most people believe that it was Richard because he wanted to be king. There are still debates today about what happened to the boys in the tower but no one is 100% sure.
