Who were the Tudors?

The Tudors are one of the most famous families ever to rule England. They first came to power on 22nd August 1485 after Richard III was defeated at the Battle of Bosworth by Henry Tudor. Richard was the last king of England to die in battle and not only signalled the end of the medieval era and the beginning of modern history but the Wars of the Roses had come to an end when Henry VII married Elizabeth of York.

They were in power from 1485 when Henry Tudor was crowned King Henry VII, until the time Queen Elizabeth I died, without an heir, in 1603.

Welcome to Term 4


This term our focus book is Macbeth. What a fantastic opportunity to study such a famous author. William Shakespeare.

In music this term we have been looking at rock music!

Our DT focus has been Tudor houses - have a look at what we have created!

The book Macbeth has enabled us to create some wonderful pieces of drama. The children really love getting in role and becoming the characters in the story.
