What We Are Learning
This half term we will be learning about The Victorian Empire. During this topic we will learn about what life was like in factories, workshops and Victorian homes; comparing what life was like for rich and poor people. We will also explore how Britain built an empire and the consequences for these new territories.
In maths we will start by working on place value. We will be identifying large numbers up to 1,000,000; practising rounding numbers; using negative numbers in context; and solving number and practical problems.
In Science, we will be carrying out investigations into forces such as gravity, friction and resistance.
In RE, we will be learning about the Christian faith and where the Bible comes from.
PE will be outside wherever possible. Please come dressed for outdoor sports on your PE day.
