Summer 1

The Tudors - Off with his head!

Our topic this half term is The Tudors. We kick start our topic with our trip to Gainsbrough Old Hall, where we will learn about King Henry's banquet. How it was prepared and celebrated and even look at the different clothes they would have worn.


In Science we will be learning about forces which fits in nicely with our DT unit on gears, pulleys and levers. Where the children will design, build a prototype, evaluate and build the real thing.


English half termly objectives:

  • drawing inferences such as inferring characters’ feelings, thoughts and motives from their actions, and justifying inferences with evidence
  • predicting what might happen from details stated and implied
  • summarising the main ideas drawn from more than one paragraph, identifying key details that support the main ideas
  • identifying how language, structure and presentation contribute to meaning.
  • Participate in discussions about books that are read to them and those they can read for themselves, building on their own and others’ ideas and challenging views courteously.
  • Explain and discuss their understanding of what they have read, including through formal presentations and debates, maintaining a focus on the topic and using notes where necessary.
  • Provide reasoned justifications for their views.
  • Brackets, dashes or commas to indicate parenthesis
  • Use of commas to clarify meaning or avoid ambiguity
  • noting and developing initial ideas, drawing on reading and research where necessary
  • précising longer passages
  • using a wide range of devices to build cohesion within and across paragraphs
  • using further organisational and presentational devices to structure text and to guide the reader#

Maths half termly objectives:


  • Identify, name and write equivalent fractions of a given fraction, represented visually, including tenths and hundredths.
  • Recognise mixed numbers and improper fractions and convert from one form to the other and write mathematical statements > 1 as a mixed number [for example, 2/5 + 4/5 = 6/5 = 1 1/5].
  • Add and subtract fractions with the same denominator and denominators that are multiples of the same number.
  • Multiply proper fractions and mixed numbers by whole numbers, supported by materials and diagrams.
  • Read and write decimal numbers as fractions [for example, 0.71 = 71/100].
  • Recognise and use thousandths and relate them to tenths, hundredths and decimal equivalents.
  • Round decimals with two decimal places to the nearest whole number and to one decimal place.
  • Read, write, order and compare numbers with up to three decimal places.
  • Solve problems involving number up to three decimal places.
  • Recognise the per cent symbol (%) and understand that per cent relates to ‘number of parts per hundred’, and write percentages as a fraction with denominator 100, and as a decimal.
  • Solve problems which require knowing percentage and decimal equivalents of 1/2, 1/4, 1/5, 2/5, 4/5, and those fractions with a denominator of a multiple of 10 or 25.
