This spring we will be learning all about Tudor life and the struggle for power during this period of history. We will take a dive into our local history learning, as we research the War of the Roses and how Lancashire and Yorkshire's rivalry shaped the monarchy and power in Britain today.
Why not take a look at what we did last year in Years 5 and 6...
In the spring term, we will explore the depths of the oceans in our topic: Into the Deep. This topic will take us on a journey to the sea and along rivers as we study physical geography. We learnt about pollution in our rivers and oceans, through our class text, 'This Morning I Met a Whale' by Michael Morpurgo. After learning about the harm plastic pollution does to marine life, we felt called to action. We wrote to members of parliament, both our local MPs and even the Prime Minister, to persuade them to act now in the fight against climate change. We posted our letters, and received a reply from the Prime Minister's office!
In the second half term, we are diving into the heart of the rainforest, researching living things and their habitats, climate biomes and some British history as we investigate the journey of British explorers who ventured into the unknown jungles.
Our class text, the Explorer was the theme for our World Book Day costumes and is inspiring some rainforest writing. We have also decorated our classroom with tropical flowers and hanging vines.
