History and RE News

In RE we’ve spent the first half term thinking about our role in the world and examining our beliefs about what makes a good person, what inspires us, what makes life worth living and considering some of life’s ultimate questions. This half term we will be studying the Jewish religion – understanding what Jews believe about their contract with God and Promised Land and how their beliefs impact on their everyday lives.

In History, having learnt about Henry VII and Henry VIII, we will looking at life in Tudor times, using evidence such as wills and inventories to find different standards of living among the rich and the poor. We will look at rich and poor people’s houses and also consider how for the homeless,  begging was considered a punishable offence.

Here is a comic radio guide to life in Tudor times presented by Barney Haywood:
