Off with her head!

What a fantastic start to the term! Turtles have been learning all about the Terrible Tudors! We wanted to find out if Henry VIII was the most influential monarch...
We started off thinking like historians and found out about the key dates of the Tudor period. 
Take a look at our class Tudor Timeline!
We also enjoyed learning all about Henry VIII's wives, can you name them all?

  • Died
  • Divorced
  • Beheaded

In art, we have been appraising Tudor artists to help us create our own Tudor Portraits! 
In RSHE we have been learning about our school community and who helps us to learn. We enjoyed role playing different members of our school community and reflecting on all the things they do to help us be successful in our learning. 
In Turtles class we used our column addition knowledge to solve the 'MAKE 100 CHALLENGE'. 
Autumn 2
Growing up in Europe
In Turtles this half term, we have been learning all about what it is like to grow up in Europe. The children have discovered all of the countries in Europe and enjoyed comparing the similarities and differences between them. 
We have also enjoyed a fantastic trip to our local Pizza Express where we learnt all about making fresh Italian pizzas! We even got to have a go at making our own which were absolutely delicious.
