The New Year

We have spent the first few weeks getting to know each other and now we move forward into the heart of the Autumn term.

 

Over the coming frantic weeks we will go through different topics and subject areas linked to our study of time, emphasising the differences between the Rich and Poor during Tudor Times.

 

Our Learning Journey with the Tudors

Having just started our new topic, we have begun by looking at the clothes worn by people during the Tudor period.  We have identified the differences between the clothes of the Rich and Poor during this period of British history and will have examples of our work here shortly.

 

We've already worked our way through our drawing project in Art and produced amazing work based on Tudor clothing which has been used to create part of our classroom display.  Take a look below, can you tell the difference between the clothing of the rich and the poor during Tudor times?

While studying the Tudors we are also continuing its other areas of work and have really loved working on the ABBA song 'Mamma Mia', focussing on the patterns played throughout the song with the help of Mrs Llewellyn.  

 

How do you think we sound?
