What we are learning

Here is our curriculum for the year, and the knowledge organisers for our learning this term. These set out the key facts and vocabulary that your child needs to know about each topic.

Parents, you can help your child by reading the knowledge organisers with them, talking to them about what they have read, and quizzing your children on it over the term. You could:

- ask your child to tell you the meaning of some of the vocabulary 

- ask them to draw diagrams / pictures / maps and label them

- encourage them to do their own research on the topic.

The children will have fun quizzes in class to test how many facts from the knowledge organisers they know.

Our film about Victorian London

In autumn term we studied the Victorians. We learnt biographical facts about Queen Victoria, including her life as a young princess, and then explored what life was like in Victorian London. We know that industrialisation meant that many more people came to live in London in Victorian times, and many were homeless or lived in slum housing, and that poor people did dangerous and dirty jobs - even children. We read a historical text about children who were mudlarks and waded in the River Thames to find things they could sell. We then wrote a screenplay about what might have happened if the young Princess Victoria had met some mudlarks, and used green screen technology to make a film of our play as part of our computing learning. We hope you enjoy watching it!
