R Charlesworth: October 2020
Base 4, this half term you have blown me away. You have totally thrown yourself into our topic, engaging and exploring all we have done and because of this you have learnt such a lot. Ask any child from base 4 about the time of Henry the 8th and you will be wowed.
Once again, your historical writing has blown me away, here are just a couple of snippets of what the children have written, totally independently;
"Henry VIIIs reign was an extraordinary section of the Tudor dynasty. It lasted from 1509 to 1547. Henry had three children; Mary, Elizabeth and his beloved son Edward.He was known for many things but the main attraction was being married six times! After 24 years of marriage, Henry decided to divorce his first wife, Catherine of Aragon, however Pope Clement VII did not allow him. So, Henry created his own church; the Church of England."
"King Henry VIII had six wives. Catherine of Aragon was Henry's first wife, she gave him two children, one named Henry (who only survived for approximately 50 days) the other called Mary who was known as 'Bloody Mary' when she was older. Catherine of Aragon was married to Henry for 24 years. "
The knowledge they have and can explain is just wonderful.
This week we also enjoyed some work with clay. We sketched some sections of a ruined abbey- looking carefully at the building as whole and working our way down to even the weathering on the stone work. We then took this further and developed our design on clay tiles, taking great care to convey a true image of the abbey. We created sketch books for our learning journey books and are now waiting for our clay pieces to dry.
I hope that you all have a wonderful half term, relax, enjoy time together and I look forward to seeing you after the break.
