Year 5 Overview 2020 - 2021
Autumn Half Term 1 - Off with Her Head!
Let's travel back in time to meet the terrifying Tudors!
During this half term, online research will help us to write biographies about influential people of the period, and we'll use source materials to create a Tudor timeline. Tudor portraits will provide us with the inspiration to create royal paintings; we'll learn a courtly dance and compose Tudor music. Our geography skills will help us to compare maps of Tudor London to present day London and plot Anne Boleyn's journey to her execution. Internet research will help is learn more about Henry's life, his marriages and his break from the Roman Catholic church.
