Week Beginning 8th May 2017

In humanities we are learning about the Tudors and as part of their learning Pine class found out that the success at the Battle of Bosworth began the reign of the Tudors.  
We found out about the tale of the House of Lancaster and the House of York and the War of Roses leading to Battle of Bosworth. Henry Tudor came to the throne and became Henry VII, the first Tudor King after defeating his uncle Richard III.  We then discussed the difference between first and second hand accounts. Looking at first hand report of Battle of Bosworth, read and highlighted key information as a class.  Finally, the children each made a red and white rose to represent the House of Lancaster and the House of York.
