The Tudors

We will be learning about what life was truly like during the Tudor era and answering questions such as:


  • Who were the Tudors?
  • Where and when did they live?
  • Who was Henry VIII?
  • Why did Henry break with Rome?
  • Differences between rich and poor in Tudor times
  • Who was Bloody Mary?
  • What can we find out about Tudor punishment and crime?
  • Who were the Tudor explorers and what did they discover?



For information on what Year 5 will be doing in all subjects, please see the curriculum overview on our class page!



 In RE this half term we will be exploring  Loss, death and Christian hope. We will be looking at what the Bible says about Heaven and that as Christians we have the promise of eternal life with God in Heaven. We will have a session with Father Ian where he will address any questions we may have on this sensitive subject.

We will look at the subject of Heaven from children's books, especially one called Heaven written by Nicholas Allen. This book looks at Heaven from a dogs point of view and is a light hearted way of looking at a serious subject.

Heaven : Allan, Nicholas: Amazon.co.uk: Books



Our Christian value this half term is Compassion We will be looking at what it means to be compassionate in our dealings with other people.
