Our Changing World
This term as part of our topic linked to our English writing we built on our learning about the environment (plastic in the ocean) and learnt about deforestation. We learnt about both sides to this issue and produced a balanced argument on this topic. Here is some of our writing:

Off with their heads!
We concluded our learning on the Tudors by visiting Holdenby House for a Tudor experience day. We had a fabulous time learning all about life in Tudor times. We took part in different activities with Mistress Lettis and Mistress Maggott including: a pike drill so we knew how to fend off enemies, felt making so we could make our own clothes, Tudor games and Tudor dance for when we had to attend Court.
We tried our hands at preparing some Tudor recipes. We foraged for herbs and chose and cleaned vegetables from our kitchen garden to make pottage, we prepared jumbles (a traditional Tudor biscuit), we prepared and cooked Maids of Honour (one of Henry VIII favourite sweet treats) and harvested berries and apples from the kitchen garden to prepare apple and blackberry crumble. Once we had prepared, mixed and cooked our recipes, we all tried each item. Not everything was to everyone's taste!
Life in Tudor Times
We have been learning all about life in the Tudor times; we then completed double-page spreads to show our understanding.
We began our learning about the Tudors by focusing on how the Tudor Rose came to be. We learnt about the Battle of Bosworth and Henry Tudor's rise to the monarchy.
It was our turn for Forest School on a Wednesday. Here are some of our activities so far:
