History Focus:


Across our history learning, we will be focusing on the Victorian Era, attempting to answer our driving question: 'Were all Victorian children equal?' 


We will focus on the lives of the rich and the poor in Victorian Britain. We will learn about the life of Doctor Barnardo and the work he did to improve the lives of Victorian children. We will take inspiration for this to develop and lead a fundraising day for the Barnardo's Charity. We will then focus our attention on the visit of Queen Victoria to Wolverhampton, writing a Diary entry from the perspective of a Victorian Child.


DT Focus:


Across our DT learning this half-term, we are going to be attempting to answer the question: 'What would the Queen eat at a traditional mean?'.


We are aiming to create a healthy meal or dish for the Queen's banquet.


We are going to think about:

  1. The importance of correct storage and handling of ingredients.
  2. How to measure ingredients accurately
  3. How to calculate ratios of ingredients and scale up or down from a given recipe.
  4. Demonstrate our baking and cooking techniques.
  5. Create and define recipes to include ingredients, methods, cooking times and temperatures.


Topic Hook: Victorian Day


To introduce our new topic of the Victorians we held a Victorian dress up day in class.


We would have the chance to dress up and experience what it was like to be in a Victorian classroom for the day. Children would use chalk, write on chalkboards and follow EVERY RULE of the classroom.
