We have loved learning all about Henry VIII. We have researched and written our own biographies.
We have loved having a local author in school. Jen Carney has written a series of books 'BUG'. We really enjoyed testing out the biscuit rules and illustrating a hedgehog in her style.
We have looked closely at WW2 and have written emotive and engaging poems based on the War. We linked our poems to how the Soldiers would have felt during battle and used our Local History work to guide us. Our poems also linked to our Remembrance assembly and we performed them to our peers.
Autumn 1 - Macbeth
During English we have used Macbeth as our Quality text. We have used drama to understand the characters and explore the play. We have written character descriptions on Macbeth. We have also understood the letter that Macbeth sent to Lady Macbeth and wrote a soliloquy of her thoughts and feelings.
