Homework

Homework will be set on this page every week on Monday.

Spellings will be tested the following Monday.

Any homework to hand in should be done on a Monday.

There will be a menu here in due course.  The idea is that you can pick one item each week when it suits you best and bring it in on a Monday.  You do not have to do them all and you do not have to do them in order.

Summer Term

Homework Menu - Try to pick one thing each week to have a go at:

Make a model of a Tudor house (no taller than 15cm)

Research Tudor medicine and make a "Doctor's Guide"

Find out about Tudor food, design a menu for a poor and a rich person

Research a famous Tudor Explorer and make an information sheet to tell others about him.
