Spring 1 - Distant Lands
What does distant lands mean? Can you name a distant land?
These are some of the questions the children in class 7 will be beginning to explore in the next couple of weeks. They will find out which distant land we will be learning about and having a go at a range of fun and engaging activities link to our chosen country!
Autumn 2 - The Victorians
What a busy half term! The children learnt so much about the Victorians including what schools were like and how poor and rich people lived. They also learnt about significant people from the past such as Queen Victoria, Florence Nightingale, John Boyd Dunlop and John Barbour. They all really enjoyed our trip to St John's Museum too.
Here are some facts the children have learnt:
*Florence Nightingale was called Lady with the lamp because she used to look after the injured soldiers in the night and she needed a candle to see in the dark
*Queen Victoria was born in 1819 and died when she was 81
*Queen Victoria only wore black after her Husband died because she was so sad
*John Barbour invented waterproof coats and we still have Barbour clothes now!
*Schools were much stricter in the Victorian times. You had to call the teacher Ma'am and if you were naughty you had to wear the dunces hat
The children also took part in a science experiment. They had to find out if a curly wurly would stretch and if it did how far! Have a go yourself and see if you can find out if a curly wurly will stretch. Be careful, the chocolate goes everywhere!!
Autumn 1 - Pirates
Our first topic is Pirates. We have received letters from Captain Pete Pigeon who has set us a range of challenges to compete over the half term. If we manage to comolete all the challenges, we can have a pirate party to celebrate! We have already learnt the 7 continents; ask your children to sing you the continent song!
