Summer – Tudors
We will study life during the Tudor period commencing with the trial of Anne Boleyn; through investigation and discussion we will decide if she was guilty.

Seesaw is up and running and this will be used to set homework and post photos to give you a little insight into what we are getting up to during the day.

Homework will be issued on a Wednesday and is to be returned to school the following Monday.

We ask that you read with your child for 15 minutes each day. Reading is vitally important to mental stimulation, knowledge expansion and better writing skills.
