Our topic in Emerald class for the Autumn term is going to be Victorians. The Victorian age in British history is named after Queen Victoria, who was Britain's queen from 1837 until 1901. What was life like for Victorian children? There were big differences in homes, schools, toys and entertainments. No TV, no computers, no central heating, no cars. No air travel — unless you went up in a balloon! Many children went to work, not to school. Welcome to the Victorian world. It's time to find out how children (your great-great-great-grandparents perhaps!) lived more than a hundred years ago.
Our class text will be Charlotte's Web by E.B White and we will also be looking at some other favourite books. In Science we will be looking at electricity and sound and the link this to Victorians. We will also be linking art through the Victorian topic e.g. silhouettes and landscapes.

Homework will be set for children on a Friday and I am asking children to return it on or before the following Wednesday. Homework will usually consist of a English and Maths piece. In addition to this, children will be expected to practise key spellings and consolidate times tables knowledge. Reading is a vital part of children's education. All children will have guided sessions in school. If you could try to hear your child read as often as possible and make a note of this in the 'Home/school diary' then this would be much appreciated and of great benefit to your child.

Our main PE days this term will be Monday and Wednesday but if children could have PE kits in school every day then that would be great. Children will need a t shirt and shorts for indoor PE and a warm tracksuit or jogging bottoms and jumper with trainers for outdoor PE as we will continue to do outdoor PE in the cold weather!
