Our Topic subjects are a huge part of our learning at Milton Hall and so far we have covered some very interesting ones. If you would like to do some more learning on our previous topics, here are some reminders of what we have covered so far.
Why are the royal family so important?
This included learning about our current royal family, comparing their childhood to the Queen's, creating a family tree of Windsor royals, comparing two of the Queen's homes, understanding the difference between Great Britain, the British Isles and the United Kingdom (because there is a difference), learning the names of the British islands that surround mainland UK.
Home Learning: What will happen when the Queen passes away?
Why was Henry VIII so famous?
This included learning about the Tudor family; creating a timeline of Tudor Kings and Queens, looking at Tudor punishment, understanding the English Reformation (when Henry VIII moved away from Catholicism), what Henry VIII did for fun, Henry VIII's 6 wives and his reasons for marrying so often and the difference in lifestyles between poor and rich Tudor children.

We are still learning about this topic. It's included learning about where we can find rainforests on the globe, the different layers of the rainforest, the animals that live in the rainforest, the dangers the rainforests face, what deforestation is and why it is happening.
In science, we've been learning about Changing States; when solids turn to liquid, liquids to gas and vice versa.
