Spring Term Overview

Timetable

This term we will be immersing ourselves in the Victorian era. This historical topic will spread across most subjects in the curriculum. In writing we will be reading and completing work on the book Street Child by Berlie Doherty. Exploring this novel will enable children to discuss some very challenging themes including cruelty, injustice and resilience. It will also help them to develop an understanding of issues such as poverty and child labour. With this rich text as a stimulus we will write diary extracts, recounts and develop our narrative writing skills. We will also use our computing multimedia skills to research and prepare a factual and informative presentation based on a specific Victorian theme or topic. We will then present these to the rest of the class. In art we will study the British artist William Morris, which. We will make careful observations and then create our own designs which we will transfer to lino printing tiles and then print in a repeating pattern. 

Trips: The Great Exhibition at the V&A - Fri 2nd Feb, The William Morris Gallery - Fri 23rd Feb.
