Welcome back!

 

We hope you have enjoyed your holidays and are ready for your final module of Year 5. Where has the time flown- how is it the last half term of Year 5? You have all been brilliant so far, let’s keep this up and have a fantastic end to an already fantastic year!

It's word play week - we have some fantastic activities happening each day from a variety of different authors. We even have a visit from Joshua Seigal on Thursday!

This half term we are going to be taking a trip to the past, to investigate a period very different to today. We will be exploring the history of royals and how they have changed laws to make England what it is today. In School, we will begin by focusing on one royal family in particular, who came to power in England in 1485.

 

We will discuss some very interesting individuals from this period too. One individual is well known for drastically changing the laws in England to benefit his needs and forcing people to change their religion. This individual also has a phrase which summarises how he treated his wives! Can you guess who the king is from the phrase below?

‘divorced, beheaded, died... divorced, beheaded, survived’

We’re going on a trip! This half term we are fortunate enough to visit a local house linked to our module. It looks quite different to houses we generally see around Hall Green and inside holds lots of articles which will help to us understand more about the past. We will be taking part in exciting activities during our session and will help us to stretch our inquisitive Learning Muscle.

 

This half term we will be reading ‘Running on the Roof of the World’ by Jess Butterworth. The children have already explored two books by this author and both were wonderful to read!
