Welcome to Term 2
What did the Victorians do for us?
The theme for this term is the Victorians and their impact on our country. We will be reading ’A Christmas Carol’ by Charles Dickens, which will give us an insight into Victorian life and Christmas. We will look at the expansion of the British Empire, the inventions of the Victorian era and take a look at schooling.
English and Maths
Our English lessons will be linked to our topic as usual. We will be researching and creating PowerPoint presentations for Queen Victoria, comparing childhood in the Victorian era to now, and creating a diary of a Victorian child. We will also be learning about famous Victorian inventors and scientists and debating ‘who changed the world the most?’ We will be exploring the themes in ‘A Christmas Carol’ and creating character profiles based on Scrooge. In Maths, we will begin with fractions, looking at adding or subtracting unit and non-unit fractions, converting mixed numbers and improper fractions, before moving onto Multiplication and Division; focusing on multiplying or dividing 4 digit numbers by 2 digits.
Science: Properties and changes of materials. Art/DT: Clay sculpting, Dioramas PE: Handball and Dance RE: Incarnation Geography: Latitude and Longitude, Human development in the local area.
We will be visiting Ash Heritage Centre on the 23rd November and learning about Victorian life in our village. We would like the children to dress up as a Victorian to be fully immersed in the experience.
PE sessions will take place on Mondays and Fridays. PE lessons will be taking place outside as well as in the hall so please ensure your child has an appropriate PE Kit. Children will also need to bring a water bottle to school as we will take this outside on the days of our PE lessons.
