Spring 1

This half term, we are learning about the Victorians. Our topic question is 'How did the Victorians influence the way we live today?'


It has been another busy term for year 6 learning about "The Victorians."

During our topic lessons, we started off by ordering a timeline to find out where the Victorians fit in to British history. This led perfectly into finding out about Queen Victoria herself- the women a whole era was named after. We researched key events that happened under her reign and discovered some inventions that were produced; some of these have influenced how we live today. 

We were so lucky to have Berlie Doherty (author of our focus text 'Street Child') join us in a zoom meeting and answer some of our questions!
