There are some changes to homework this year so please see the below homework overview for detail. Homework will be 'set' on a Friday and should be handed in on a Wednesday. Pre-learning tasks will also be set across the term. These tasks will give children an advantage in class and will help to bring out what learners already know; what misconceptions they may have and what interests them.


Below are some key documents relating to our class.

Pre-learning shout out!


So you can have an advantage in our lessons at school; here is a look at what we will be learning about in the next few weeks.


At the beginning of Term 2 :


- In Maths the pupils will be learning about BODMAS and fractions. 

- In our topic lessons pupils will be starting their learning about the Victorian era. These lessons will focus on the timeline of events during 1837-1901 as well as what it was like in a Victorian school. 

- In Science we shall be learning about how light travels. 



Let’s hop on a steam train and travel back in time to the Victorian era! During this half term, we’ll use non-fiction books to research Victorian education and people, including famous inventors, reformers and Queen Victoria herself. Then, we’ll write non-chronological reports and biographies using a range of source materials. We’ll write on slates, learn the three ‘Rs’ and take part in cooking, sewing and woodwork lessons, just like a child in a Victorian school. We’ll make popular Victorian dishes and play with Victorian toys. ‘Drill’ activities will have us following instructions to march, stretch and jump in formation. We’ll learn about crime and punishment and find out what life was like in a Victorian slum. How things have changed! We’ll discover what happened during the Industrial Revolution and learn about significant inventions. Copying the style of famous Victorian paintings, we’ll experiment with block printing techniques.
