Welcome to Julia Donaldson Class
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.
On Friday 13th May we have an online workshop booked with the Royal Collection Trust where we will be exploring the State Coaches and the buildings of the Royal Mews at Buckingham Palace.
Family members are invited to enjoy story time at 3pm on Thursday 5th May with their children. Refreshments will be available from 2.45pm.
