This week, in our reading sessions we learnt about Anne Boleyn and compared her character and skills with Henry’s first wife, Catherine of Aragon. In History, we learnt about the food and drinks in Tudor Times. We discussed the similarities and differences between the rich and the poor. As an outcome, in Design and Technology, we made bread for the rich, following and adapting a recipe, by adding extra ingredients! Yummy!
In English, children produced newspaper reports: ‘Tudor coins discovered in a garden’. They used many text features such as a headline and quotes using inverted commas; they wrote in columns, in the 3rd person and in the past tense. In Maths, children revised equivalent fractions and learnt how to convert improper fractions to mixed numbers and vice versa. They persevered with counting in fractions.
In PE, they participated in various activities, so that they develop their strength by using their body weight.
