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.
I am looking forward to an action-packed first half term with the new Tigers! 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.
