This term in Year 3 we are leaning about ‘The Tudors’. In English, the children will be learning how to write a set of Instructions and a Play Script. Our focus will be William Shakespeare’s ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’. They will be looking at the key features of these text types and using them within their Tudor topic. In History we will be learning about Tudor monarchs and their reigns. We will gain an in-depth knowledge of Henry VIII and investigate why he had six wives. We will find out what type of Monarch Henry VIII was. In Art, the children will be focusing on Tudor portraits. They will be learning how to draw a face and its features as well as sketching Tudor clothing. The children will be using soft pencil to create line, tone and texture and pastels to blend colour.
