What can we learn from the Victorians?
We have carefully selected stories that will allow us to explore this learning question.
We will be exploring Victorian homes, jobs and schools by reading ‘Daisy Saves The Day’ by Shirley Hughes. We will also study ‘Queen Victoria’s Bathing Machine’ by Gloria Whelan and find out about Queen Victoria and Prince Albert, and Victorian seaside holidays.
We will have the opportunity to find out about other famous Victorians including Isambard Kingdom Brunel, John Boyd Dunlop, Mary Seacole, Florence Nightingale and William Morris.
Our Science learning will focus on materials, and we will be carrying out lots of investigations and using our practical science skills. In Computing we will be improving our photography and editing skills, and also learning how to make PowerPoints.
