Last half term we enjoyed our “Who’s the Boss?” learning theme.  We have been learning about the concept of democracy using different time periods in history. We have concluded our studies of Ancient Greece and King John and the signing of the Magna Carta in 1215. Great enjoyment was had, learning about the colourful life of Henry the Eighth and his many marriages! A real highlight of the half term was the visit from local MP, Peter Aldous, who taught us lots about his work in the local constituency.

Currently, we are concluding the democracy topic by rehearsing for the Democracy Assembly, which we plan to showcase to parents and carers in the final week of this half term. We are learning about the English Civil war and the conflicts between the Parliamentarians and the Roundheads; we will shortly be moving forward in time to learn about democracy in the UK today and policies of the main political parties.

Once “Who’s the Boss?” is fully completed we shall begin our final topic of Year 5 entitled, “Around the World in 80 Days”, which is a geography and science-based theme. Highlights of this topic include trips to the Benacre estate and to Africa Alive!
