 Welcome to Year Five

Our Topic is - Off with her head

This term our Year 5 will be travelling back in time to the 1500’s and meet the terrifying Tudors, a domineering dynasty that changed our history.  year 5 children will be learning all about the Tudors!

The children will consider what sort of man would order the beheading of his wife and was she really that bad? The children will discover an opulent court where dancing and singing goes hand in hand with swift falls from favour- and even swifter falling of heads!

Across the curriculum subjects, year 5 will develop their painting skills, solve and write riddles in English, refine detective skills and use evidence from the past to find the accused...innocent or guilty!

 

The history curriculum covers a large part of this topic and the children will be developing their skills of chronology and develop a secureknowledge and understanding of British, local and world history.  They will make connections with trends over time and develop appropriate historical terminology.
