Autumn Term topic - The Industrial Revolution
Our topic focuses on the impact of the industrial revolution and life in Victorian England - what was so revolutionary about this period in history? We will examine what life was like, particularly for children, living during these times and our class text is Street Child by Berlie Doherty.
P.E. sessions take place on Wednesday afternoons and will be led by Mr McDonnell. Can we remind all children that they need to have full and correct kit in school for these sessions as the weather often forces us to change our plans.
Maths and English homework will be issued on Thursdays. This will leave Friday for children to check any problems or difficulties in school before handing homework in the following Monday. If children are really struggling or there are exceptional circumstances, please write a note in the children’s books so that we can help them to complete their studies or offer an extension.
Alongside the regular maths and English homework, children will frequently be issued topic-based projects to complete (on average once every half term). These projects are always shared on the class page on the school’s website and normally include an optional extra activity for those seeking additional challenge.
