a) Spring 2019 (Yr 5/6)
In Spring 1 our learning curriculum in Year 5 and 6 has focused on the big question:
Who were the Tudors?
This has been split up into these weekly questions:
· Why was King Henry VIII the most well-known Tudor monarch?
· Who ruled during the Tudor times?
· What was it like to live in the Tudor times?
Our pupils have written a biography about Henry VIII, created a Tudor timeline, written an advert for a new wife for Henry VIII, compared the lives of rich and poor, designed a menu for a Tudor banquet and painted portraits of Tudor monarchs using watercolours.
In English we have looked at the book ‘The Day
The Crayons Quit.’ and used as a stimulus for writing. The children’s chairs mysteriously ‘disappeared’ and they had to write a persuasive letter for them to return. Following persuasive speeches, we held an election to decide which new colours would become an addition to the box.
In maths, Year 5 and 6 have been investigating fractions, decimals and percentages; multiplication and division; measures and algebra.
In music , the children have been learning Greensleeves. In ICT, they have been learning to code.
