The Doctor Who Adventure Game: 'The Gunpowder Plot' will bring the 17th Century to life in your classroom!

The specially commissioned Teacher's Resource Pack is designed for use at different stages across the primary and early secondary curriculum and allows students to learn through game play, investigation and enquiry.

The game has been designed with specific learning elements built in from the outset and allows for historical facts to be discovered through play, historical references and key objects that are woven throughout the game.

In addition to the Gunpowder Plot, the resources will cover the themes of childhood, crime and punishment and London life in 1605 and are designed to be used in conjunction with the game.
