4R – Friday 15th May – Home Learning – English

IMPORTANT INFORMATION:
This work is your home learning in English for today (Friday 15th May) and Monday 18th May. This means that you have 4 days, including the weekend, to do the work. It needs to be quality and lots of effort needs to be put into it. It will form a large chunk of your final information text so it would be better done on paper so you can keep it for the end of next week’s final draft. Please still send in a photo of your work to y4upload@broadheath.coventry.sch.uk

This task is all about collecting, learning and organising information. This information will form your information texts about the Tudors next week that you have already written the introduction for on Wednesday.

You need to start of by doing some research and write notes under a subheading then turning the notes into a detailed paragraph. Here is an example of notes taken from the following page.
http://www.primaryhomeworkhelp.co.uk/tudors/food.html
Remember notes only have simple information, they are not full sentences and are separated by bullet points.

Tudor Food:
* ate lots of fresh food
* no fridges or freezers
* no forks
* 75% of diet meat – oxen, deer, calves, pigs, badger, wild boar
* bread most meals – different for poor and rich
* lots of fresh fruit and veg – no food from abroad until the end
* fish eaten by people near rivers and sea
* had to eat fish on fridays and at Lent
* drank ale and rich drank wine
* water unfit for drinking

Now these notes need to be turned into a detailed paragraph under a subheading.

TUDOR FOOD
During Tudor times, people ate their food as fresh as possible because there was no such thing as fridges or freezers to store food for long periods. Did you know there was no forks in Tudor times? It’s true, they ate using their hands, knives and spoons. A quarter, thats 75%, of a wealthy Tudor’s diet would have been meat and they would eat animals like oxen, deer, calves, pigs and wild boars. They would even eat badgers. How disgusting is that! Bread would be eaten with most meals too, but the rich and poor had different types of bread. I would think that the rich bread tasted better. Wouldn’t you? Lots of fruit and vegetables were eaten too, but only ones that could be grown in Britain. Food from other countries only started arriving late in the Tudor reign. If you lived by the sea or a river, you would eat fish but everyone had to eat fish on a Friday and during Lent. Because water was unfit to drink, because it was contaminated with sewage, Tudors drank ale. Rich Tudors would also drink wine.

As you can see, this is very detailed, and your work needs to aspire to these standards too. Fronted adverbials, conjunctions, technical vocabulary, a range of punctuation (.?!,) and information text features are a must.

Here are the websites you can use to do the research:
https://primaryfacts.com/the-tudors-facts-information-and-resources/
http://www.primaryhomeworkhelp.co.uk/Tudors.html

Esha, Lisa, Tymon, Marley, Safwan, Rhema : Research two areas of Tudor life and make notes. Then write your paragraphs.

All other pupils: Research 3 areas of Tudor life and make notes. Then, write three paragraphs with subheadings in your own words.

Sabah, Saira, Aayan. M, Ravi, Umar and Afsana : As above, but write four paragraphs building on your own knowledge of the Tudors.

  1. The Tudors ate fresh food because in there times the never had freezers like us now a days. Tudors never had forks they only got eat with knives and very weird spoons. The Tudors diet was only eating animals like oxen, deer, calves, pigs, and wild boars. The rich would have nice white bread and poor would have wet soaked bread.
    Lots of fruit and vegtables were eaten in Tudor reign. The rich would drink wine and the poor sadly only drank dirty water.

  2. I’ve chosen to write about 1) Battle of Bosworth. 2) King Henry VIII and his six wives. 3) Tudor medicine.
    In Tudor times five monarchs ruled England, Wales and Ireland. The Tudor monarchs were a Welsh family and ruled for 118 years from ( 1485 – 1603) King Henry VII, ruled from 1485-1509, King Henry VIII ruled from (1509-1547) , Edward VI ruled from (1547 – 1553) , Mary I ru!ed from ( 1553 – 1558) , Elizabeth I ruled from ( 1558 – 1703 ).

    Henry VIII and his six wives!
    Henry VIII had 6 wives, Catherine of Aragon was the first, he divorced her because she couldn’t give birth to a male heir. Ann Boleyn was his second wife she was beheaded because she was thought to commit adultery and conspiracy against the king. Jane Seymour was king Henry VIII third wife but she died shortly after childbirth then he married Anne of Cleve’s but Henry wasn’t attracted to her, he thought she looked like a horse and divorced her. Kathryn Howard was his fifth wife she was beheaded because she was accused of treason and adultery and Catherine parr survived because King Henry died before her.

    The battle of Bosworth!
    The battle of Bosworth was the last significant battle of the wars of the roses . The civil war was between the houses of Lancaster and York was extended over England in the latter half of the 15th century.
    Tudor medicine!
    In Tudor times alot of herbal remedies were used. Tudors thought that small pox could be cured by hanging red curtains around the bed . The Tudors didn’t have a national health service neather did they know about antibiotics and anesthetics. When plague doctors had to check on patient.
    Plage black death bad blood.They attached leech’s to the skin or cut into a vein to let out bad blood .head ache they used lavender, sage, majorum .
    They used chamile to cure sickness .

  3. Tudors food:
    The Tudors ate fresh food they used to eat with their hands, knifes, spoons they didn’t have forks.People would eat only animals when they needed it this might have been when their vegetables or other crops finished.When this happened a day before they would hang the animal on the ceiling.This meant that the food was fresh.The Tudors had bread most of the time with their meals and also rich people would only have it.Fruits and vegetables were only picked in there seasons.Fish was only eaten by people who lived near the sea this was because they could fish and they could have it afterwards.

  4. The Tudors were the Welsh-English
    dynasty which ruled England and Wales from 1485 to 1603–one of British history’s most exciting times. Tudor ‘s reign lasted from 1485 till 1603. The three major Tudor monarchs (Henry VII, Henry VIII, and Elizabeth I) played a significant role in transforming England from a Medieval backwater, still stuck in the Middle Ages, into a strong Renaissance state that would have dominated most of the globe in the coming decades.owns were overcrowded, roads were dirty and transportation was hard. Overcrowding has caused risks of fire and illness. England got richer than ever in 118 years of Tudor rule.

  5. WHO WERE THE TUDORS:
    The Tudors were the Welsh-English dynasty which ruled England and Wales from 1485 to 1603–one of British history’s most exciting times. Tudor ‘s reign lasted from 1485 till 1603. The three major Tudor monarchs (Henry VII, Henry VIII, and Elizabeth I) played a significant role in transforming England from a Medieval backwater, still stuck in the Middle Ages, into a strong Renaissance state that would have dominated most of the globe in the coming decades.owns were overcrowded, roads were dirty and transportation was hard. Overcrowding has caused risks of fire and illness. England got richer than ever in 118 years of Tudor rule. As the land became richer, the towns grew, beautiful houses were built and schools and colleges were founded. Arts and crafts were thriving, too. England was the birthplace of great painters, musicians, and writers.

    TUDOR TOWNS, SHOPS, STREETS:
    In Tudor towns, there were bakers, butchers, fishmongers, fishermen, cooks, weavers, tailors and robe builders, washerwomen, shoemakers, road workers, and carpenters, smiths and metal workers. Since most people were unable to read in Tudor days, shopkeepers had to hang pictures outside to tell their customers what was for sale. There was no proper drainage in the cities. Open sewers frequently flowed down the center of the streets directly into rivers and ponds, from which people collected drinking water. All the waste was dumped into the streets, including the waste of the toilet. Diseases spread rapidly and were very widespread. People usually received their water from pumps, wells, or water carriers holding water on their shoulders in containers.

    THE TUDOR DIET:
    The rich Tudors diet had been focused on consuming meat. They must have consumed a lot of meat but also more expensive meats like swan, peacock, geese, boar, and deer. Vegetables were considered the diet of the poor and were not always consumed by the wealthy Tudors. Rich people in the Tudor era would eat potatoes, bread, and whatever meat they could find, such as chickens, blackbirds, pheasants, partridges, hens, duck, and pigeons. They also used to eat fish caught in rivers and lakes. They also drank ale instead of drinking water with their meals, and the wealthy drank wine. Water was also unsuitable for drinking because it was polluted with sewage. Sugar came from overseas, so it was costly. The Tudor people have also used honey to sweeten their meals instead.

  6. Henry VII
    Henry was born in 28th January 1457. His father was Edward Tudor and his mother was lady Margret Beaufort. He reigned for 24 years from 1485 to 1509. He died on 21st April 1509 and the cause of his death was of tuberculosis and 4 of his children survived beyond infancy Henry VIII, Margret Tudor,Arthur Tudor and Mary Tudor.

  7. The three areas of tudor life is in hut near a river or a palace.
    * 75% of a tudor meal is meat
    * If you live next to a river you mostly eat fish.
    * Rich pepole have white bread with there meal.
    * poor people have bread with soup.
    * some meat was preserved by rubbing salt into it.
    A tudor would have a big 75%meal of meat. In tudor times if you live next to rivers you will eat fish. Rich people will have white bread.(think how delicious it would have tasted yummm) Poor people would have a kind of whole weat bread served with soup in a clay pot. (That is very healthy than rich peoples snack)
