Julia Donaldson Class

Welcome to Julia Donaldson Class 


Our Topic 

In Term 5 we will be learning all about the Royal Family. In our History lessons, we will be learning about monarchs past and present – specifically the reign of King Henry VIII and Queen Elizabeth II. At the end of the term, we will be celebrating the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee with our own street party. In our Geography lessons, we will be learning about castles and palaces in the UK and finding out about royal families from around the world. In Computing, we will be using the internet to search for information about Queen Elizabeth II and learning all about e-safety. In our Art lessons, we will be making our own jubilee clay pots and in DT, we will be designing and creating jubilee carriages with moving parts. In our English lessons, we will be exploring the story ‘The Queen’s Hat’ and we will be writing our own versions of the story.
