Yr 6 Mrs Dudley
Our topic for autumn term 2 is ‘The Visionary Victorians’. During this topic, we will be finding out about Queen Victoria and the Victorian period including the difference between the rich and the poor, how life was for children and some of the amazing developments of the time. We will read Street Child by Berlie Doherty and write some diaries from the workhouse inspired by it. We will use our geography skills to find out about the British Empire and we will learn about light and electric circuits in science. In R.E. we will consider why Christians believe that Jesus is the Messiah. In art, we will find out about the work of William Morris and use it to inspire our own art and we will design and make samplers for a Victorian household in our D.T.
Our library time continues to be on a Friday which allows us time to quiz and collect new reading books for the weekend. Just a gentle reminder that children should be reading their AR books every night and quizzing at least once a week.
Now we are in year 6, we need to be taking more responsibility for completing any home discovery journal tasks, practising spellings and bringing in our kits on appropriate days.
