Year 6 Spring Term

Medieval Madness

Welcome to Y6’s new topic: ‘Medieval Madness’!

In this unit, we will explore the world of the torturous Tudors: from the many wives of Henry VIII, to the unusual – and sometimes gory – aspects of crime and punishment during his reign.

We will – of course – also dive into the wonderful world of Harry Potter. Through our visit to the Harry Potter Studio Tour, we will immerse ourselves in this magical wonderland as we learn all about the stories and characters, as well as studying prop, costume and set design. The popular series will also inspire our writing and artwork: prepare yourselves for incredible short stories, outstanding watercolours and some amazing clay work!

So, let’s hear you all shout ‘accio, broomstick!’ and prepare to fly into a topic jam-packed with fun, facts and fantasy!
