We are well and truly in to our topic of London now and have a packed week of learning all about the Tudors and how they lived.
We learnt all about how the Tudors came in to power, the Tudor Rose and its meaning and all about Henry VIII and his six wives!
Then we moved on to every day life for both rich and poor families in the Tudor times and what they would have done for work (or not!) and what leisure activities they would have enjoyed.
Today we learnt about what a Tudor banquet would be like and we wrote a menu for Henry VIII and his guests. We had everything from spit roasted chickens to goose pie to roasted pigs head and cows tongue stew!!!!!
Our Maths learning has been focused on retrieving our knowledge of doubles and place value to support us with addition. We used tens frames and Base 10 to support us in this and tried out new ways to record our working out on paper. We have begun to think about exchanging 10 ones for a ten whilst doing this and crossing over in to the next ten.
We looked at natural vs man made in our Science lesson this week, made pop art Union Jacks in Art, enjoyed another Relax Kids session, learnt some Tudor dancing in Music, sung some funny songs and heard the story of Troy from Mrs Keough and still managed to fit in playtime and lunchtime too. Phew! No wonder we're so exhausted by the end of the week...
Have a lovely weekend (enjoy the sunshine tomorrow) and I'll see you all bright and early on Monday morning - next week we're learning all about the Plague!!
