Learn with passion to live with purpose
Our topic is based around the Tudors. 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, newspaper reports and explanation texts. We also have our residential trip to Hooke Court where we will find out lots more about life in Tudor times. We will be considering the enquiry question:
‘What can I learn from those who went before me?’
Our starting point will be:
People: Henry Tudor and Richard III
Place: Bosworth Battle Field
Problem: Is the loss of life on the battle field worth the result?
Possibilities: What can we learn from the decisions made by the two Monarchs? Would we have done anything differently?
Your child will have the opportunity to explore this topic through art and Literacy. In addition to the History work and daily Mathematics lessons, there will be Personal, Social and Health sessions, Guided Reading, Spelling, PE, RE, French, ICT skills, and Science.
This term we are starting an enquiry based topic based around the question 'are rivers alive?' We will be thinking about how rivers are formed, the impact of floods and drought, the water cycle and the different ways which we use rivers.
In English we will be looking at the text 'The Rhythm of the rain', 'A River' and different forms of poetry. We are looking forward to our geography field trip later in the term.
In addition to the topic work and daily Mathematics lessons, there will be Personal, Social and Health sessions, Science, PE, RE, Spelling, French, guided reading and computing. We will also continue to learn how to play the violin as part of our music sessions.
This term our topic is called ‘One World’ and is linked to our LKS2 play ‘Eddie the Penguin Saves the World’. Eddie notices that his iceberg is melting and we will be finding out how to stop the ice melting and save our planet. In English we will be writing information leaflets and persuasive letters to our local MP, which links to our visits last term to the Houses of Parliament.
We are looking forward to our performance!

In literacy, the children will learn and write about the process of mummification, write a newspaper report on Howard Carter's remarkable discoveries, draft, edit and present a narrative based on the book ‘The Egyptian Cinderella’ and use a video stimulus to produce a diary entry based on 'Tadeo Jones'.
The children will explore the Ancient Egyptian civilisation further in history and topic lessons, focussing on the period between the time of the first pharaoh around 3100 BC to the Roman invasion in 31 BC, when Egypt became part of the Roman Empire. Across the unit, pupils will look at the impact of notable people and events as well as broader themes of significance, achievements, chronology and legacy.
