Hello everyone! I hope you’ve enjoyed celebrating what makes Britain great this week. We have seen some brilliant home learning coming in. If you haven’t sent anything in yet, make sure you send it to our class email address.
Here is today’s learning.
For many years, the King or Queen of the country made all of the laws and decided who to go to war with. That has changed now and the Queen doesn’t make the laws. Imagine you became the King or Queen of Great Britain during those days. Write down what your first 10 laws would be to either bring in or change. This is called your ‘royal decree’. Once you have drafted your royal decree, you could write it up neatly, making it look regal.
It’s Friday! So it’s TTRS day today. Make sure you have a good session on Times Tables Rockstars today.
After that, follow this link and play this game. Make sure you choose the tables that you are working on.
England (and later Great Britain) has had lots of famous Kings and Queens over many years. Your task today is to help you to find out more about them.
Here are 12 statements which relate to 12 different Kings or Queens. Your job is to find out which monarch each statement relates to. Copy and complete these statements when you have found out who each is about.
Here are the statements:
