Revolution (Autumn 2)

"Are you listening, boy? What is twenty-seven plus forty-five? Come on - faster now, we haven't got all day!"


Find out about super-strict schools by travelling back in time to a Victorian classroom. Make sure you're on your best behaviour though, as punishments are unquestionably terrible!


Discover a time when great minds thought new thoughts and ingenious inventors created so many things we take for granted today: the electric light bulb, the telephone and even the modern flushing toilet!  
You might even get to invent things yourself in the Victorian Dragon's Den...


We will research a time when Victoria was Queen and Albert was Prince Consort - when some people lived in slums while others prospered.

Our Victorian School Day:

Y6 are stepping back in time this half term to when Queen Victoria reigned and when children of their age were often put to work! We have experienced what a typical school day would have been like in the Victorian era, for those lucky enough to be able to receive an education, and have written a non-chronological report on the different types of Victorian schools.


Our class have planned and written a historical fiction piece, where a main character is a domestic servant. Was it a cook, a housemaid or a stable boy? What trouble came upon them and was the lady of the house happy?


In science, Year 6 have focused on electricity (and its inventor!), looking at circuits, symbols for components and have investigated why a thicker wire results in a brighter bulb!


We have also looked at a timeline of Victorian inventions. Did you know it was rumoured that the first jelly babies were created in this era?

We have wrapped up our topic with groups designing a new creation which would improve the lives of Victorian people. Well done to the three groups who successfully negotiated an agreement with The Dragons!

Some of our amazing homework examples!
