Victorian School Day
In UKS2, last week, we have had a fantastic spark day - life in a Victorian School. Coming into school in the morning, children dressed up, completely looking the part and learnt about all aspects of school life over 200 years ago. Children took part in lessons, reading, writing, arithmetic and religion (the 4R's) as well as drill, elocution lessons as well as looking at a range of primary sources from the era. This was further followed up by playing with Victorian styled toys and obviously singing 'God save the Queen'.
All of the children had a fantastic day, contributed really well and learnt lots which sets us up for our topic of 'Revolution'. Thanks for you support with the costumes.
Here are a selection of images from the day.
Today we have two Lexia Superstars!!!!

Wednesday Geography Lesson
Firstly, ignore the timetable, I have managed to plan Art History instead of Geography (this will be tomorrow). Sorry about that guys.
Today we will begin to look at some of the Victorian artists and how they portray the past through their painting.
Follow the PowerPoint below and download the images and viewfinder to begin some fine art from the Victorian era.
It'd be great to see some too!
Below is the daily handwriting sheet that you could complete during your handwriting lesson. All of the words provided will be on the KS2 spelling list along with the spelling rule. You could also practise you weekly spelling for handwriting instead. You can decide.
Remember, to further practise your spellings you could use:
Look, say, cover, write, check
Mini spelling tests with an adult/older sibling
Graffiti spellings (writing your spellings in a number of styles and in a number of colours.)
Practising the ones that you don't know!
