In English, we will be reading two fictional diaries based on real events in the lives of Catherine of Aragon and Anne Boleyn. We will be writing our own fictional diary entries. Later in the term, we will be reading a mystery story set in Tudor times and then writing our own exciting mystery stories.  


In Maths, we will start the term learning about fractions, decimals and percentages, before moving on to geometry, position and measurement. We will continue to regularly review our previous learning.



Our topic this term is all about the Tudor times. We will be learning about the different monarchs that reigned in Tudor times. We will learn about the break from the Roman Catholic Church and the dissolution of the monasteries. The knowledge organiser for this topic can be found at the top of the page. You can watch a video explaining all about the knowledge organiser below.



In Science this term, we will be learning about the life cycles of different types of animals - mammals, amphibians, birds and insects - and comparing them.

Later in the term, we will be learning about the life stages of humans.

We will be learning about mixtures, and reversible and irreversible reactions in the last part of the term. 


This term, our PE sessions will be based on cricket, athletics, tennis and self-defence.
