Dear children and families,

Firstly, a BIG welcome to Year 5/6 - we are very excited for a brilliant school year ahead. In this class, we are one big family who care and respect one another and are proud of each other’s achievements. We work together to create a welcome and warm class atmosphere, where every class member feels valued and loved.  We hope you enjoy looking at our class page - don't forget to follow our school Twitter page too!

Please note, our PE days for Summer 1 are: Monday and Thursday until half term.

       Summer 1           Off with Her Head!     

 ConvertinWhat sort of man would order the beheading of his wife? Was she really that bad? Travel back in time to the 1500s and meet the terrifying Tudors, a domineering dynasty that changed our history. Discover an opulent court where dancing and singing goes hand in hand with swift falls from favour, and even swifter falling of heads. Develop your painting skills in miniature, solve riddles and remember to protect your precious neck with a large white ruff, if you want to survive at Tudor court. Flex your detective muscles and become a criminal investigator. Will you find out the facts or will the evidence from the past bemuse you? How will you find the accused, innocent or guilty? It’s your turn to take part in one of the most famous trials that the world has ever known.

 

We will be enhancing our Tudors topic with Berlie Doherty's novel Treason

        Treason

Lost and in mortal danger, he is rescued by a poor boy, Nick Drew. Together they must brave imprisonment and death as they embark on a great adventure to set Will's father free.
