During the spring term, our topic will be the Tudors. This term is a History focus where we will learn about the impact of the Tudor period on our lives through Henry VIII’s wives, the dissolution of the monasteries, the work of Shakespeare and the journeys of Tudor explorers. We will also study what life was like in Tudor times in relation to other eras of History that we have studied.
It is extremely important that children read regularly in school and at home. Please read with your child and ask them questions about their book. There are questions in children’s planners to help you see the types of questions you should ask. Our class novels that we will use in class this term are Viking Boy, Anglo-Saxon Boy and The Dragons Hoard.
Each week children will get English and a piece of maths homework. Children will receive a topic based homework which should take a half term to complete. This homework is ongoing. The maths and English will be given on a Friday and needs to be returned on Wednesday, where children will be tested on their spellings. Additionally, we have an online learning platform (Class Dojo) where you and your child has an account to access online resources.
