History: Renaissance England

Weeks 8 and 9 of school we learned about Renaissance England using Layers of Learning, year 3 unit 5.

We added to our timeline.


We watched YouTube videos of Queen Elizabeth I and Sir Walter Raleigh.


We made spoon people of Queen Elizabeth I and others in her life.


We learned about the Spanish Armada.


We learned about how the British Parliament is set up today.


We learned about Roundheads and Cavaliers.


We watched a YouTube video about the Great Fire of London.


We learned about the Gunpowder Plot and made an effigy of Guy Fawkes.


And then we went outside and burned it. I do wonder what our neighbor thought when he came out to his truck to leave to go somewhere and saw the six of us (my parents joined us for the burning) standing around this thing being burned in the middle of the street. But we were, you know, remembering the Fifth of November (a little early).
