Autumn 1 - More Glass than Wall

As historians, we will investigate the Tudor period of history including:
  • Hardwick Hall (more glass than wall)
  • Studies of artefacts and architecture
  • Tudor life
We will develop the skills to:
  • Use evidence to ask questions and find answers to questions about the past.
  • Suggest suitable sources of evidence for historical enquiries.
  • Suggest causes and consequences of some of the main events and changes in history.
  • Describe the characteristic features of the past, including ideas, beliefs, attitudes and experiences of men, women and children.


We will read stories with a historical setting. As well as refining our ability to read words accurately we will develop our inference skills learning about different time periods. 

As authors, we will plan, write and edit stories our own stories in a historical setting. This will include developing the skills to develop characters, settings and plots with imaginative description and dialogue.

We will become more skilled at using devices such as conjunctions to signal time changes, shift attention, inject suspense and change the setting.

Of course our spelling and handwriting will also improve we hope to secure pen licenses!


In maths lessons we will be securing our basic number and measurement skills:
  • Place Value
  • Addition
  • Subtraction
  • Multiplication
  • Division
  • Measurement: Length and Perimeter

Other subjects
