Queen Victoria's Knickers
This term our topic has been focused around the books 'Queen Victoria's Knickers' and 'Traction Man.' The children have explored different forms of writing fact pages about Queen Victoria and life in Victorians times, letters to Queen Victoria and making up new adventures for class Traction Man stories.
We have been looking at the work of William Morris who said everything in the home should be 'either beautiful or useful'. We looked carefully at his work using a view finder and practised our observational drawing skills. We then designed a tile in the style of William Morris and used these to create our calanders.
In Maths we have been working hard to master our addition and subtraction to 10 and exploring place value to 20.
We have enjoyed finding out about life in Victorian times and comparing it to our lives today. On our trip to Gloucester Museum the children got to experience life in a Victorian classroom and had the chance to play with old toys.
