Hatfield House

On Wednesday, Class 5 visited Hatfield House, as part of our History topic on the Tudors. We had the chance to meet Catherine Parr, Henry VIII’s sixth wife. She taught us about what life was like being married to Henry VIII and also how we should greet him. She described Henry as a grumpy man who only cared about himself

Next, we had the opportunity to actually meet him! We had gifts that included a painting, a drink and a bowl of water, (for him to wash his hands in). We also prepared a song to give as a gift.
As part of our visit we also looked around some of the gardens. We took a walk to the Elizabeth Oak which was where Elizabeth I (Henry VIII’s daughter) was told she was going to become Queen.

Overall it was a fantastic trip and I was so impressed with the children’s knowledge and questions they asked.

In Maths, we have been looking at equivalent fractions and how to convert between improper fractions and mixed numbers.

We have read a few more chapters of our class book, ‘The boy in the back of the class’ and have started planning our refugee story.

Today was Australian fundraiser day, thank you for everyone who brought in cakes for the cake sale. The current total so far is £536.99.

Have a lovely weekend!

Miss Abbott :)
