Creative Curriculum – Revolution (The Victorian Age)

During this topic, we will be learning about how life changed during this period of history. We will look at some of the significant inventions that occurred at this time. We will compare the lives of rich and poor families. We will learn about some significant figures who fought to improve the quality of people’s lives.

Make sure that you can read and understand these words related to ‘Revolution’, if you don’t know the meaning please find out. Try and use these words in your writing!

What Are We Learning?

In English, we are studying the memorable Michael Morpurgo story “The Giant’s Necklace”. This will lead to the children planning and writing their own  ghost stories.

After that, we will use a short video called “Road’s End” to stimulate the children’s imaginations and inspire their writing.

The children will learn how to improve their writing by using parenthesis and colons to separate main clauses. We will also finish learning the punctuation and grammar curriculum and begin revision.

In Maths, we will be: learning how to solve problems involving percentages; deepening our understanding of ratio; developing our understanding of algebra; and learning how to use co-ordinates in four quadrants.

In Science, we will learn about the theory of evolution and how animals and plants are adapted to live in their environments.

After that, we will study how light travels, how shadows are formed and why they change.

In PSHE, our topic is “Dreams and Goals”. The children will be thinking about how to set achievable goals at this important time of their lives. We will continue to learn about the Universal Rights of Children.

In French, we will learn some vocabulary to start talking about food. We will read a simple story in French and develop strategies for working out the meaning of unfamiliar words.

We will be basing our music learning around the composer Benjamin Britten.

In Computing, we will use Purple Mash to devise our own quizzes using a variety of different question types.
