Term 2

Our topic this term is based around the Tudors and is called ‘Off with Her Head!’ We have planned and thought about all of the exciting things that we would like to find out about the history of the Tudor Kings and Queens and everyday life. Our literacy lessons will be based around this theme and we will be looking at writing non-fiction reports, features of non-fiction texts, writing instructions and information texts. We also have a trip planned to Sulgrave manor where we will find out lots more about life in Tudor times.
