The Victorians- spring 2019
Welcome back everyone and a very Happy New Year to you all! Let's make 2019 an awesome year for learning!
Our topic this term is the Victorians.
We will be exploring what it was like to be a child in Victorian Britain, as well as looking at great inventions, monarchy and empire.
In English we will be studying 'Street Child' by Berlie Doherty before moving onto 'The Nowhere Emporium' by Ross Mackenzie and 'The Greatest Showman' (2017).
In science we will be looking at 'evolution and inheritance' and making links to our Victorian topic, too.
Our mathematics learning will look at measures, percentages, ratio, algebra and area this half term, as well as lots of recapping of topics already covered.
Our trip this term will be to the Great Gressingham Victorian School where children will have the fantastic experience of a day in the life of a Victorian schoolboy/ schoolgirl taught by Mrs North.
We are super excited to get started on our learning journey! As always, keep checking in for updates of our learning.
Times Table Rockstars
All children received a log-in for TTR on Friday (14/12/18). The times tables are the basics of maths and it is SO important that the children know their tables as they underpin so many different concepts. This subscription will allow children to practise their tables, compete against other children in the class and across the school and earn points to spend on an 'avatar' that they have created.
Any feedback is appreciated about how the children are responding to the app.

I have created log-ins for all children to access The Spelling Shed to support their spelling homework which will be sent home this week. Every week, I will set a new challenge for the children to complete, but it is also a platform where the children can challenge themselves, challenge their friends and beat their high score as many times as they'd like! We are using this resource in the classroom, so I hope the children enjoy the chance to use it at home too.
Jaguars should have brought home their Mathletics log-ins at the end of last week. I will set regular activities based on the Maths learning that has been completed that week for the children to consolidate their understanding. Although it isn't compulsory, I would highly recommend that the children access this wonderful resource at home to practise their learning
Welcome to Jaguars Class Page!
I am looking forward to an action-packed first half term with my new class! Since it is the centenary of The Great War, we will begin our learning journey together studying the causes behind it and exploring how it impacted on our locality.
In English, we will be kick-starting our learning by studying some fascinating poetry of WW1.
In Math, we will be studying number and place value, ensuring that we are secure with numbers to ten million.
Our class story (chosen by the children) this term is: Cogheart by Peter Bunzl. He sent a tweet to the class which said, "I hope you all enjoy the story!" I'm sure we will.
Please keep checking out our class page for important updates and snapshots of our learning!
