Trewirgie Junior School

Our topic for Autumn Term 2022 is......

'How can we build a picture of the past?'

This Autumn, Year 3 will be asking 'How can we get a picture of the past?' We will become history detectives, examining a range of historical sources from the Tudor period and exploring what they

reveal about life at that time. We will re-enact the Battle of Bosworth to find out how and why the

Tudor period began, look at Hans Holbein’s portraits and the affect they had on history, use Tudor

maps to journey around the world with Sir Francis Drake and invent machines to attack castles.


To share what we have learnt, the children will be holding an exhibition at Kresen Kernow

at the end of the term.



Home Learning 

Below are 6 questions that we would like the children to think about. Each question has a range of suggestions as to how they can share their understanding of each. They can select any way of demonstrating their understanding. Across the term we hope that your child is curious enough to

extend and deepen their learning and understanding further. Towards the end of the term we will

be showcasing the children's learning linked to these six year questions. Please share any of

their work on Class DoJo or bring into school with them.
