This term we are studying 'The Victorians' as our history topic. We have been looking at how our lives differ from children in the Victorian era, we thought about workhouses and conditions. We have researched the life of Queen Victorian and thought about how her reign has had and impact on our lives today.
We enjoyed experiencing life as a Victorian child. We ate gruel, practised our handwriting, tried our hand at weaving and made our own delicious bread.
We have been learning all about Islam this term and enjoyed a trip to the Al Rahma mosque in Liverpool.
In Science, we have started with the topic 'Living Thing and Their Habitats' and we have been looking at the different characteristics animals have and how that helps them to be grouped together into Linnaeus' Five Kingdoms. We will be looking at how animals have evolved to suit their habitats and how and why we classify animals.
We will be starting our Geography topic later on this term and we are going to be visiting Southport as part of our Geography topic and looking at land use, tourism and mapping skills. We are then going to link this in to coastlines and how these could change and have changed over time. We will be able to make cross-curricular links to D&T by making lighthouse structures.
