Overview

Explore Longthorpe Tower - a historical site on Peterborough's doorstep, sit on a garderobe and get to the bottom of medieval life!

Bring a class to this unique monument and local historical site and explore this delightful medieval tower, part of a manor house that was built around 1300.

Longthorpe Tower has been listed as one of the 100 most important historic sites in the UK.
Kings, saints, animals, musicians and monsters jostle for space in the finest set of domestic medieval wall paintings anywhere in Western Europe.

National curriculum links: History, English, PSHE.

Participating in this ‘It’s a Lord’s Life’ activity, it is aimed that pupils will:

    • learn about significant historical events, people (Thorpe family) and places (Longthorpe Tower, Peterborough Cathedral) in their locality.
    • Learn about events beyond living memory that are significant nationally or globally related to the medieval period (Black Death, Great Famine).
    • Identify and show an understanding of aspects of medieval life (or a past life) and be able to compare with life of today.
    • Develop an awareness of the past, using common words and phrases relating to the passing of time.
    • Appreciate that primary resources such as artefacts and buildings help us to understand the past.
      participate in discussions, role-play and improvisations.
    • Develop pleasure in reading from listening to a story at a level beyond that at which they can read
      independently.
