Barrow Hedges Primary School

Off with Her Head - Autumn 2

In this section...

Our second topic in Year 5 has a history focus and gives the children a great insight into the beginnings of modern monarchy and how British religion has changed over time.

We study King Henry VIII and his six wives, as well as how Henry VIII created the Church of England. We have the opportunity to write our own biographies, news articles and persuasive letters. We also look at the Tudor lifestyle of both adults and children, as well as studying Tudor art work and heraldry. 

Finally, we are lucky enough to tie this topic in with Christmas and make our very own Tudor gingerbread houses - they're great fun!
