Spring Term 2022

Our topic this term is Victorians and the children will be thinking about whether or not they would like to have been alive in the Victorian era. We have found out where the Victorian era fits within British history and have learnt about Queen Victoria and the important inventions of the time. Our enthusiasm for this topic is endless!

In Maths in year 6 our current focus is fractions. Our knowledge of times tables is, as ever, proving very useful with this! The children in year 5 will be learning about multiplication; beginning to use formal written methods in addition to learning about prime numbers, factors, multiples and squared and cubed numbers.

In English we have begun reading Berlie Doherty’s Street Child and the children have loved meeting the varied characters in the book so far. They are enjoying predicting what might happen in the story and can’t wait to read more each day!
