Friday 14th January 2021

Refreshed and refocused by the start of a new topic, the children have returned to school ready to embrace our monthly character virtue of ‘wonder’ in their curious approach to learning.

Year 6 have travelled back in time to investigate the reign of Queen Victoria and the changes that took place throughout the Victorian Era. Through exploring the effects of the Industrial Revolution on Britain, the children have debated positive and negative impacts and their implications for the future. Many questions have been asked about everyday life during the 1800s which are driving the children’s research and discussions about the changes that have taken place since that time.

Poetry of the Victorian Era has inspired the children to write their own narrative poetry following the style of Tennyson’s ‘Lady of Shalott’. By incorporating various poetic devices such as alliteration, rhyme and similes, the children have composed their own version of the poem.

In science, the children have observed inherited traits and discussed the differences between environmental and inherited characteristics. The concept of variation and inheritance was revealed through discussions of traits that are common with their siblings which were inherited from parents compared to features which are unique to them. ‚Äč
