Welcome to Year 5!
We are coming to the end of our topic about The Victorians.... We have learnt so much in such a short time!
I personally think we could go onto Mastermind and have The Victorians as our specialist topic!
This term we have learnt about the following:
Famous Victorians - Charles Dickens, George Stephenson, Florence Nightingale, William Morris, Grace Darling and many more!
We have designed and made our own bridges just like Isambard Kingdom Brunel, we have made our own puppets for Punch and Judy, we have created Victorian Christmas Cards...
We have read Cogheart and watched Oliver Twist as part of our English work...
We have studied maps of the UK to locate railways and canals, and looked at maps of Africa to support our work about Dr Livingstone (I presume..)
We have of course been to Quarry Bank Mill and enjoyed our Victorian Day in school.
To finish our topic we will be including some of our Victorian themes into our Christmas Church Service next week.
OUR TOPIC NEXT TERM WILL BE:
TO INFINITY AND BEYOND!
Our Year 5 class mantra -
We will follow our hearts,
we will never give up,
we will be a caring team.
Your child may have mentioned that we have been using BBC Supermovers to help us learn and consolidate our knowledge of times tables. The children have been having lots of fun practising their tables along with perfecting some interesting moves....!
There are other programmes to use on this website which relate purely to KS2, English, Mathematics, PSHE too.
