Topic: What would school have been like in Alfreton during the Victorian era?
This term our topic is ‘What would school have been like in Alfreton during the Victorian era?’ This topic will give the children a wonderful opportunity to explore History and Geography and what it tells us about our local area. The children will be encouraged to think about what life would have been like for children growing up, how the local area has changed and still remains in our local area.
At the start of our topic we will be enjoying a trip to Croft's Infant school to explore the historical buildings in Alfreton. The children will be learning about how Alfreton has changed since the Victorian times and how life for those living in Alfreton has changed.
To showcase all of the wonderful art work we have created, we plan to hold an art exhibition the week commencing the 8th April - more information to follow nearer the time.
As scientists this term, we will be learning about animals including humans. We will be exploring the diets, skeleton and muscles of animals including humans and have the opportunity to research various animals to inspire our English writing genre (Non-Chronological reports).
The focus for our computing topic this term is ‘we are presenters’, during this topic the children will be designing presentations, creating them using software and presenting these to the class.
In French this term, we will be focusing on describing ourselves and others using basic French phrases. Students from David Nieper will be accompanying us, providing us with expert French skills.
PE is taught every Wednesday. This term the children are focusing on healthy habits which can be incorporated into team games such as dodgeball. All children need to remember to bring their PE and leave it in school. If you have any difficulties organising your child's PE kit please speak to their class teacher and they will be more than happy to help.
