Year 5

Learning Link: The Terrific Tudors

This term we will be finding out all about those terrible ……Oh!  We mean TERRIFIC Tudors.  Although the Tudors have a reputation for lots of beheadings and weddings, in fact their legacy goes much further.  We will be exploring how the Tudors changed the religion of the country and the discoveries they made.  At the end of the topic we will celebrate our learning by using our knowledge to prepare and host a Tudor Banquet, complete with costumes, entertainment and of course, food!
