We will be demonstrating our knowledge of Tudors through writing various genres such as biographies, newspaper articles, diaries and story writing. We will also  be doing lots of Art and Design pic. We will be oding lots of Art and design for this topic. We will be making: Tudor roses, portraits using various media and designing our own Tudor house.

In RE, we will be learning more about the Gospel.

In Computing, we will be focusing on programming. We will be creating our own algorithms to  demonstrate fossil formation, make flowers  and drawing houses! We will use our skills on the program Scratch to debug algorithms which have already been written.

In Science, we will be looking at materials and how we classify them. We will also be looking closely at the water cycle and how water changes state.

Please can children bring their PE kits into school on Monday. They will be doing PE on Tuesday and Friday afternoons. Please can they have a white t-shirt, black shorts and plimsolls for when they do PE indoors. We will be hopefully be spending some of our PE sessions outside so to be prepared for all weathers, please can your child have tracksuit bottoms, a long sleeved top and trainers, for when we do PE outside. Children will bring their bags home every Friday.
