Revolution -  The Victorian TimEs

Steam Engine Animation

Engage, Develop, Innovate, Express

Welcome back to Term 2, we hope you have had a lovely break and are ready to travel back further in time.

Full steam ahead!


Our topic theme is the Victorian times, which will first include researching the everyday rules and routines of Victorian schools. Through this the children will then write a detailed non-chronological report, combining text, illustrations and photographs.

Next, they will be writing biographies about a significant historical figure from the Victorian times.

Then as we near Christmas, Class 6 will create Limericks, considering the works of Edward Lear.


Fractions AnimationThis term’s maths learning, will begin with using and applying addition and subtraction skills to solve reasoning and worded problems. Then, Class 6 will move on to solving multiplication and division calculations, using bar models to improve understanding. As we move towards the festive time, fractions will be introduced.






First, the children will re -discover electricity, making and evaluating circuits and using the correct symbols to design their own.

After this unit of work, we will learn about how light behaves, including light sources and reflection.
