Topic - Off with her Head!
Novel Study - .
 
 
What sort of man would order the beheading of his wife? Was she really that bad? Travel back in time to the 1500s and meet the terrifying Tudors, a domineering dynasty that changed our history. Discover an opulent court where dancing and singing goes hand in hand with swift falls from favour, and even swifter falling of heads.
 
Develop your painting skills in miniature, solve riddles and remember to protect your precious neck with a large white ruff, if you want to survive at Tudor court. Flex your detective muscles and become a criminal investigator.
 
Will you find out the facts or will the evidence from the past bemuse you? How will you find the accused, innocent or guilty? It’s your turn to take part in one of the most famous trials that the world has ever known.

Novel Study - There's a boy in the girls' bathroom.

 

In English this term, we will be studying There’s a Boy in the Girls’ Bathroom by Louis Sachar. We will be writing a diary entry from a different perspective, a story with issues and dilemmas, a balanced argument and a persuasive letter. The grammar objectives covered this term will be  modal verbs, adverbs, formal and informal language, persuasive devices, rhetorical questions, parenthesis and relative clauses.  In our spelling lessons, we will be focusing on converting nouns or adjectives into verbs by using the suffixes ‘-ate’, ‘-ise’ and ‘-ify’; as well as using the verb prefixes ‘dis-’, ‘de-’, ‘mis-’, ‘over-’ and ‘re-’.
