We will be spending the Summer Term following a History theme all about the Tudors with a focus on Henry VIII and his marriages. The children will place the Tudors on a timeline of Britain's’ history, make deductions from portraits, find out about the work of a Tudor monarch and learn the story of Henry VIII’s life in order to argue whether Henry VIII made a good or bad king.
Once more our topic will connect with other subjects across the curriculum including Literacy, Art, DT and Music.
During the course of the term, the children will study different forms of poetry, write adventure stories, learn the art of persuasive writing and write and perform play scripts.
The children will continue to be set for Numeracy according to their abilities and year group. We will continue to look at number, number operations, shape, measure, handling data and in particular, applying the skills they have acquired to solve problems. Please continue to support your child with maths homework and in learning their times tables.
With the warmer weather upon us, the children will have more opportunity to make use of our vast grounds in our habitat and light and shadow topics. This half term we are fortunate to have visitors from Cheshire Woodland Trust to work with the children to explore life in our pond and woodland habitats.
