Our continuing topic for this half term is
and is a local study of Romsey during the Victorian times.
See if you recognise any of the places in the images below:
In English we are going to use all our writing skills to create a biography about either Dr Banardo, Isambard Kingdon Brunel or Lord Palmerston. We look forward to sharing these with the Romsey Historical Society.
We will also be looking at Charles Dickens and in particular Great Expectations.
In Guided Reading we will be studying the book
'Scarper Jack and the Bloodstained Room'
by Christopher Russell.
We will be writing a newspaper article once we've found out who the killer is...
Alongside Scarper Jack we will also look at
'Street Child' by Berlie Doherty
as part of PSHE.
See what you can find out about Jim Jarvis and the links he had with Dr Banardo.
We will also be writing our own workhouse diary entries.
Maths will involve revising all the topics we have studied so far this year in preparation for May. Use Your revision guide to help with any areas of maths that you are uncertain of.
Please make sure that you know all your times tables and that you can recall them at speed.
We will also be looking at a variety of strategy and logic games and creating a game of our own.
In Science/Design Technology we will use our knowledge of electricity from last half term to make a battery-operated Victorian style Fairground Ride (Carousel or Ferris Wheel).
