Pott Shrigley Class 1 2018 - 2019

Mrs Blackwell


Spring 2


We are travelling back in time this term over 150 years to the Victorian period. The children are already enthralled at how different life was for children during this period of history! 

We will be looking at various aspects of Victorian life and at the enormous difference between the life of rich and poor children. It is important for the children to understand how their families connect to this era. I have brought in my Grandfather's birth certificate as he was born in 1900 and we have looked at photographs of him with his family who are clearly Victorians. If you have any family photographs of this era we would love to share them.

In literacy we will be reading an abridged version of the Charles Dicken's classic tale of rags to riches  - Oliver Twist. We will discuss the characters and write about the challenging situations that happen to Oliver. We will also follow some of the action  and listen to the classic songs of the musical Oliver! 

During our Monday afternoon sessions with the Reception children we will be looking at and comparing Victorian toys and making some of our own.

In Science the KS1 children will be examining Materials and what objects are made of. We will describe the materials and also how materials have changed over the last 100 years.

The children continue to develop their maths skills using diiferent written and practical methods to help develop their understanding. We are getting better at problem solving where the children use their learning in every day situations.

Please encourage your child to read regularly at home not only the books we provide at school but any of their home favourites which develop a love of reading.

 Homework -The children will be bringing home a project to research a famous Victorian over the next few weeks. More details to follow.
