During the Autumn term, Henry Class were studying the ‘Terrible Tudors’. We learned about the wives of King Henry VIII, how rich and poor Tudors lived, Tudor games and pastimes and how Tudor life was different to the world we live in today. We also had our trip to Leeds Castle, and performed our class assembly – both of which were amazing!!
Our writing during the Autumn term was linked to our Tudors topic. We learned about balanced arguments and were able to write own, based on whether Henry VIII should have been able to execute those who disagreed with him. We also enjoyed our writing based on Mr Mitchell’s mysterious discovery in the boiler room!
In Maths, we became angle experts! We are now able to draw, measure and calculate angles, using a protractor accurately. We learned about rounding and estimating, units of measurement, use of all 4 operations as well as keeping our brains ticking over with our ‘Money Mondays’ and ‘What’s the Time Wednesdays’.
Our Science topics have been: Animals including Humans; where we learned about the growth and development of babies and Properties of Materials; we planned and carried out various experiments to find out about dissolving and heat insulation.
