History – For our History we will be going back in time to discover what life was life during Tudor times, discovering; who Henry the VII was, what Tudor life was like and delving into treacherous Tudor wars. We will also be going on an adventure to Gainsborough Old Hall, an amazing trip which is filled with exciting activities to deepen our understanding of Tudors.
Science – During the first half of Autumn term in Science, we will be learning about ‘States of Matter’ exploring questions such as; What is a gas? Can material change state? How can we group different materials? In order to deepen our understanding of the world around us. During the second half we will be moving onto ‘Sound’ learning about how sound travels and how technological advancements in sound have helped improve our lives.
RE – In RE this term we will be learning about leaders and how they inspire and influence people. We will be thinking about the qualities that a leader needs to have and identify leaders who inspire and influence us in our daily lives. We will also learn about the key religious leaders in the religions of Christianity, Judaism and Islam and how they provide wisdom, inspiration and influence on how followers of these religions should live their lives.
Art – We will be using a series of lessons which build on each other to help progress our understanding of how to use and create shadows, light and textures to produce portraits. We will also be exploring the famous portrait artist Hans Holbein and reproducing some of his artwork.
DT – For design technology, we will be improving our sewing techniques in order to produce a Tudor rose. These lessons will take us on a step by step journey to help us design, create and evaluate our own Tudor roses, helping us understand what the Tudor rose symbolised during these times.
Every morning when you come into class there will be tasks on your desk to complete, usually Magic Spelling and TT Rockstars. We will also expect you to change your reading book and fill your water bottle if you need to before you settle down to your tasks. You will need to bring your indoor and outdoor PE kits on a Monday and leave them at school all week. They can be taken home to be washed on Fridays.
