Blwyddyn Newydd Dda bawb! This Spring Term we are kicking off 2020 with the topic


Time travellers - The Tudors


Class 3 have been given the task of hosting a Tudor banquet on the 12th February. In order to carry out this task we will be researching what life was like for the Tudor's in the 16th century, by:

  • Studying William Shakespeare and writing play scripts and letters
  • Comparing and contrasting traditional Welsh dances and those from the Tudor period
  • Cooking Tudor recipes
  • Composing Tudor music
  • Investigating Tudor clothing and designing outfits
  • Observing Tudor portraits
  • Considering our digital world when carrying out research and using j2e-5 to assemble our research using hyperlinks, text features and images
  • Researching plants and herbs used by the Tudors by carrying out Scientific investigations


Our School trip to St. Fagans to find out more about the Tudors will be held on Wednesday 5th February.


Our value this half term is


'Be kind and compassionate to one another forgiving each other just as in Christ God forgave you'

Ephesians 4:32
