Welcome to Squirrel Class!


Term 6 2022


Hi Squirrels!


Welcome to our class page. Here you will find information about what we are doing on certain days and what we are learning about this term.


This term our big question is:


Who was Queen before Queen Elizabeth II?



To answer this question we will be historians and look at the Victorian period. During this unit, the children learn about the significant life of Queen Victoria: both her personal life and some of her decisions as a monarch, including her involvement with the British Empire. In addition to the political context of this time, this unit also delves deeper into the social aspects of Victorian Britain, looking in particular at the lives of the poor. and


In Maths, we will be looking at shape, position and direction. In Geography, we will be carrying out a local study and look at Stilton village.  Through PSHE we will explore the themes of ‘Personal Safety’ and of ‘Changes’ as the children think about moving up to Year 6. In R.E. we will once again look at Buddhism and the term, 'Enlightenment'. Our D.T. project will be looking at the mechanisms and will be linked with our History, the Victorians. In Computing we will be focusing on how to collect and present data using different software. Our P.E. lessons will continue to be focusing on swimming and then striking and fielding (rounders and cricket). 


If you have any questions, please contact Mr Wallace via ClassDojo.


Please remember all urgent messages, or messages about attendance and changes to pick up/drop off, should be sent to the School Office.
