Autumn topic: The Victorians
During the Autumn term, Year 6 will be very busy learning about The Victorians in our topic lessons.
Throughout our topic, we will be learning about many different aspects of The Victorians but here’s a taster to get you started:
Timelines of important Victorian people and events; the Poor Laws and the Workhouse (involving drama); child labour; designing a dollhouse using joinery techniques (including IT); comparing and contrasting events from the Industrial Revolution and technical evolution and comparing and evaluating differences between Queen Victoria and Queen Elizabeth II.
We have lots to keep us occupied Year 6 so let’s get right to it and delve into the fascinating world of The Victorians!
#ThankYou100 Remembrance Work
Year 6 spent the final week of half term focusing on the centenary of the First World War. We are proud to share our appreciation for the countless people who helped, from soldiers to Girl Guides. Across the year group, we have written poems and letters of thanks to show our gratitude and commemorate those who dedicated their lives to the war effort. We also created artwork, focusing on perspective and composition, using watercolours and pastels.
Hola Mexico! We will begin by experiencing a Mexican-style festival including opportunities to experience traditional customs. During the topic, the children will learn about: Mexico’s Day of the Dead celebration; the differences between life in Mexico and the UK; the geographical features of Mexico’s Chihuahuan desert; traditional legends, writing glyphs and the ancient Maya Gods & Goddesses. Our topic will provide plenty of opportunities to develop our Year 6 art, music, drama, history and geography skills.
