This page is dedicated to all the exciting things we will be doing in class this year.
Welcome to Term 5
Divorced, beheaded, died? Our topic this term is themed around the question ‘Divorced, beheaded, Died?’ We will be exploring the rise and fall of the Tudors, finding out about how they came to power, the reign of Henry VIII and his wives, as well as Elizabeth I and the end of the Tudors. We will look at how the Tudors affected our lives today.
English and Maths
Our English lessons will be linked to our topic as usual. We will be creating a graphic novel of the Battle of Bosworth, writing a newspaper report on the beheading of Anne Boleyn and exploring the events in our class book. We will look at the works of Shakespeare and rehearse and perform a scene from a famous Shakespeare play. In Maths, we will look at perimeter (rectangle, rectilinear and polygon shapes) and area (rectangle and compound shapes) before moving on to statistics and geometry (angles).
Science: Animals including humans (reproduction). Art/DT: Graphic Novel illustrations, Portraits, Tudor houses. PE: Invasion games/ Striking and fielding RE: Judaism Geography: Latitude and longitude- Tudor exploration of the globe
We will be re-enacting the Battle of Bosworth on Friday 21st April. As part of our homework for this term, we ask that the children create a model sword and shield ready for this re-enactment.
PE sessions will take place on Mondays and Wednesdays. PE lessons will be taking place outside as well as in the hall so please ensure your child comes to school with correct PE Kit on the appropriate days. Children will also need to bring a water bottle to school as we will take this outside on the days of our PE lessons.
