We will be looking at when the Tudor dynasty came to the throne, who Henry VIII was, what Tudor entertainment, diet and early Tudor fashions were like, the many wives of Henry VIII, the creation of the Church of England, and about the Tudor heirs. Our Art lessons will complement this, as we will study the renaissance period and who influencial artists were during the Tudor time.


In PSHE, we will be looking at the characteristics of healthy friendships, looking at personal boundaries and unstanding our rights to privacy. In RE, will be exploring what different people believe about God. We will be comparing the views about God from different perspectives, including christian, islam and humanism.
