Brave New World - Autumn Term 2022

Our topic for the Autumn term is Brave New World. The topic starts with the children participating in their own version of the 'Battle of Bosworth', which started the Tudor reign. The children will then develop a strong understanding of the Tudor kings and queens, their influence on Britain at the time and their legacy. The children will study the decisions and changes made by the Tudor monarchs relating to religion, healthcare, social hierarchies, and punishment.  

 

In the second part of the term, we will be focusing on Tudor exploration of the ‘New World’. We will look at famous explorers like Walter Raleigh and Francis Drake, the ships they captained and the riches they returned to England. We will also use our geography skills to look at the routes these explorers took and the importance of the resources they gathered. The term culminates in a Tudor day, in which the children will participate in a range of Tudor activities.
