Welcome back everyone and a very Happy New Year!

It is a big welcome back to Miss Goodier who has been working in her second placement school but now returns to be with us until the summer term.

Once again we have a lot to cover over the coming term.  Our topic is 'The Tudors' which is a new topic for us in Lower Key Stage Two.  We've many exciting things planned for us to do, including a visit to Bramall Hall in Stockport later this month where we will be finding out all sorts of interesting things.  We'll be linking some of our writing in literacy to our topic too.  In these lessons we will be practising our aurgument writing in character as one of Henry VIII's many wives.  There will be some post card writing from Sir Francis Drake who went on numerous adventures during the Tudor period. However, we'll be looking at our local Gawsworth Tudor residents too and trying our hand at some spooky ghost writing based on Mary Fitton who used to live in Gawsworth Hall.  Mrs Clarke will be teaching you all about the famous Tudor artist, Hans Holbien. As well as all of this, during our design and technology work, we are going to be making some 3D Tudor houses so we had better take a close look at both Bramall and Gawsworth Halls. I wonder what their similarities and differences are?

Along side thisTudor learning, we are going to be taking part in the Macclesfield Music Festival and we will be starting to learn the songs very soon.

What a lot to look forward to. I, for one, can't wait to get started...
