Welcome to Tala Class
Tala Class Teacher is: Mrs Cannings
Our topic for Summer Term is: Magnificent Monarchs
In this history-based unit, we will learn about English and British monarchs from AD 871 to the present day and consider how the power of the monarchy has changed over time. Children will study six significant sovereigns; Alfred the Great, William the Conqueror, Henry VIII, Elizabeth I, Queen Victoria and our current monarch, Queen Elizabeth II. Finally, they will choose which of the sovereigns are the most significant and why.
In literacy, we will be writing stories with rhyming couplets using the model text, 'Queen Victoria's Bathing Machine.'

Please see below the Knowledge Organiser for our topic which provides the children with the prior knowledge to support them in this topic and the key vocabulary which will enable them to access content.
Please see below the homework for the whole of the summer term.
There are 8 activities and some will need longer to complete. For example, activity 4 is a longer task which requires using the internet or information books to find out about Elizabeth I and writing an information leaflet. Whilst, activity 1 could be completed over 1 week which requires a sentence to explain the meaning of key vocabulary from this unit.
