Spring Term- Crime and Punishment


This term we have been learning all about Crime and Punishment over time, with our main focus being on the Tudor period. We have learnt all about the Tudor monarchy and different kings and queen's favourite punishments. Next half term we will be moving towards the modern age and studying Victorian punishments as well as comparing this to the current day. 




Our books in English have been linked to our topic, with us first of all enjoying Holes, a story about a boy called Stanley Yelnats, who is sent to a juvenile correctional facility in the middle of the desert. Most recently, we have been reading 'The Executioner's Daughter, which is about a girl called Moss who's job it is to catch the heads of criminals after a beheading!



One of our favourite activities this term has been our Design and Technology work, where we have been busy making our own Tudor ducking stools, which were used to drown criminals accused of witchcraft. We have enjoyed planning and cutting the wood for these before constructing and testing them out. 






Autumn Term- UK vs South America




In English this term we have been reading some fantastic new books such as, A Walk in London, The London Eye Mystery and The Arrival. We have really enjoyed these books and as a result of reading them, have done some great writing of genres like: diaries, newspaper articles, narratives and letters. We can't wait to find out what texts we will be studying next term!







This term we are learning about:
