Macaws - Year 5 2019 - 2020

Miss Michiels



Spring Term 2020

Curriculum Learning - Spring 1


Welcome to Macaws class. I hope you have had a lovely Christmas and have started the new year with lots of enthusiasm.


Our history topic for this half term will focus on the Tudors and the children will find an answer to the question ‘What impact did Henry VIII’s leadership have on Tudor times?’

However, we will start this half term by reading the story of "Macbeth". A Shakespeare Story by Andrew Matthews. 

“When Macbeth, an ambitious general of the Scottish army, is told by witches that one day he will be king, he becomes consumed by thoughts of royalty and greatness. Encouraged by his wife, Lady Macbeth, Macbeth decides to hasten the prophesy and plots to murder the king, so he can take the crown.”

The children will plan and write a diary entry from the perspective of Lady Macbeth and a newspaper report about the murder of King Duncan. We'll also write poetry inspired by the Song of the Witches: “Double, double toil and trouble” by William Shakespeare.


To keep up to date with what is happening in our class, make sure you regularly check our school's Twitter feed.

Should you have any queries, please feel free to contact me using the email address at the top of the page or speak to me in person at the end of the school day.


It's going to be an exciting year at Cuddington Primary School!
Kind Regards,

Miss Michiels
