To refine our skills as historians, we have been looking at artefacts that give us information from the past. This has included kitchenware and paintings, clothing and written accounts. We have used our inference skills to make sensible guesses about life in Tudor times. We have learned about the Battle of Bosworth Field and the exciting fight for the throne between the Lancastrians and Yorkists.
In English we are reading The Tempest by William Shakespeare, who lived during Tudor-ruled England. We have identified unfamiliar and obscure language, and used dictionaries and thesauruses to look up their meanings, using synonyms in new sentences to show our understanding of these new words.
In the first week of October we will be watching a performance of the Tempest at West Suffolk College, by the Billimankhwe Arts theatre company. More information about this to follow!
