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 a Victorian school

In autumn term we studied the Victorians. We learned about how people lived in London - it was very different for rich people than for poor people, who lived in overcrowded slum housing, or were homeless. We discovered that poor children often had to work in dirty and dangerous jobs to earn money for their families. One man, Dr John Barnardo, started schools for these children to come to where they could learn and also have hot food, called ragged schools. We visited the Ragged School Museum, and experienced a lesson with a very strict teacher - she even had a cane! We wrote on slates and we weren't allowed to speak or even to ask questions. It was a bit scary! Back at school we wrote a screenplay about children going to a ragged school and then filmed it using green screen technology as part of our computing learning. We hope you enjoy watching it!
