The Village Academy

The Village Academy is a group of town, city and village schools that have joined together to provide the very best education for the children in our care and where we believe that education is very much a matter of the individual.

Class 3

Term 3: Tudor Topic

In Class 3 this term we will be exploring The Tudors through all areas of the National Curriculum. We have started by thinking about what we already know before going on to explore what evidence we can find from Tudor history, particularly looking at the roll of portraits of monarchs. The children will then be developing their skills of drawing to create their own 'Tudor Portrait'.  We will be exploring the life of Henry VIII and using this to provide exciting writing stimuli in literacy.

In literacy we will continue to develop our grammar and descriptive writing skills, such as alliteration and similes.

In maths, we will continue to recap the 4 operations and build on our strategies for calculating operations. We will continue to work on our application of our skills when applying them to maths investigations.

Across the wider curriculum, the children will have weekly PE lessons with Mrs Booker as well as weekly music lessons with Mrs Willmott.
