The Tudors in Twenty Minutes Class Assembly - Extract

Narrator

We hope you'll listen
We haven't got all day
A quarter of an hour
A quarter of an hour
And we have got a lot to say
About the Tudors
Kings and Queens
Some of the strangest times
That you've ever seen
So let's go back
Five hundred years or so
Our time machine is all ready to go!

In 1485, a Welsh Prince, named Henry Tudor got an army together and marched into England and fought King Richard at Bosworth Field in Leicestershire.

Soldiers X 8

(Fight scene with swords etc)

Richard III

Things are not going too well. I'm getting out of here. A horse, a horse! My kingdom for a horse....!

Soldier

(Sarcastically) Sorry, your majesty. No horses! (Kills him with a sword)

Richard III

Aaargh!!

All

Aaaaaah....

Narrator 2:

A very sad end for Richard the king. They say he didn't feel a thing.

Narrator 1

This war was called the War of the Roses. It got its name from the badges the two sides used. The Lancastrians, Henry's lot, used a red rose, and the Yorkists, Richard's lot, used a white rose.

After the battle, Henry had a great idea.
Please welcome the first Tudor king, Henry the VII!
(Applause and cheers)
