Well done Year 6!
We have had a brilliant week and used our resilience and independence values to keep going, even when sometimes things were a little different.
Continuing with our theme of Vaunted Victorians this term, we have been learning about the Industrial Revolution, its links to the expansion of the British Empire and its impact on Artists of the time. The children have started to look at the work of artist Laurence Stephen Lowry.
[Lowry is famous for painting scenes of life in the industrial districts]
In English, we have all been thoroughly enjoying our new text ‘Street Child’. It is set in Victorians times and about a young boy from a poor family that ends up having to go to the Workhouse. Discussions in class have been lively and insightful as the children have been able to draw on their knowledge of life in this era.
We are beginning to look at diaries and will be writing an entry as if we are Jim Jarvis the main character from ‘Street Child’.
The children have completed 3 short assessments in Maths this week and we can see that they have been catching up with missed learning. We are going deeper with our learning and understanding about multiplication and division, so it is really important that children keep practising their times tables at home.
