History: Tudors (Off with her head)

In history we will:

Write biographies about influential people of the period and we’ll use source materials to create a Tudor timeline. Our geography skills will help us to compare maps of Tudor London to present day London and plot Anne Boleyn’s journey to her execution. Internet research will help us learn more about Henry’s life, his marriages and his break from the Roman Catholic church.


In English, we will be learning all about the “Highwayman” by Alfred Noyes.


Guided reading will take place on Wednesday for all groups. Home reading books and library books will be changed on a Thursday. We ask that, in year 5, children are reading for 20 minutes every night. This could be a novel, comic, newspaper or their school reading book.


In maths, our focus will be on:

  • Multiplication
  • Division
  • Fractions (equivalent, adding, subtracting, multiplying, dividing, improper fractions, mixed number)
  • Decimal numbers
  • Problem solving



Spellings will be given on Friday to be learnt for the following Wednesday. It is crucial your child learns their spellings as their ability to spell is a crucial aspect of effective written English.




PE will be on Tuesday and Wednesday. Please ensure your child has the correct kit (yellow top, black shorts and pumps). Children can bring in an outdoor PE kit which consists of track suit bottoms, a top and trainers. Please note: They will ONLY be allowed to wear this if they are going outdoors so they MUST also have their indoor PE kit in school AT ALL TIMES.


Thank you for your help and support.
