Welcome to Mrs. Surplice’s Class Page.

Our topic this term is The Tudors and the children are already busy finding out about the life in Tudor Times and The Golden Age of Exploration. They are keen to find out about the famous people in Tudor Times that helped to shape our country's history and all the amazing discoveries that were made.


On 27th September, Timepieces will be visiting us. Your children will have the opportunity to dress up as Tudors for the day and be transported back to a time when Queen Elizabeth was on the throne and England and Spain were enemies. During the day, the children will go to an Tudor School, play games that were played in Tudor times and be trained to fight the Spaniards if they invade! They'll also take part in a Tudor style trial where they may get called upon to give evidence or even sit on the jury.

My Y5 Maths Group are expected to be able to recall times tables facts rapidly and will be timed on a speed tables test every two weeks. Their challenge is to beat their score and their time so need to practise their tables regularly.
