Term 3 - Children past and present - The Victorians

Knowledge Organiser

Welcome back! Happy new year!


We hope you all had a fun festive break and are ready for another busy term. 


This term our topic is called 'Children Past and Present', we will be learning all about life in the Victorian times and in our English our text will be 'The Grotlyn' which will base our writing around. 


We have lots of exciting learning planned!


On Wednesday 15th January we will be getting a coach to Bristol and West Synagogue to learn abut the Jewish religion and how they celebrate special events.


Included on this page is this term's Knowledge Organiser, please use this to support your child in their learning at home but particularly helping them to understand and use the key vocabulary. 


Our PE days have changed and will now be on a Wednesday and a Thursday. Indoor PE will be indoors and this term it will be dance. Outdoor PE will be on a Thursday and the children will be developing their skills to hit, catch and throw.  Children can wear leggings or tracksuit bottoms for outdoor PE, but please ensure that they are black.


We look forward to seeing you on Tuesday 7th January.

 Welcome back and Happy new year!


We are thrilled to have the children back in class full of energy ready to kick-start the new Term!


We have begun our new topic all about the Victorians. We have begun exploring what life was like back then by looking at objects and artefacts, as well as comparing how things were now and then.  We have visited the park and stood in the exact places that photos had been taken during the Victorian times and compared the similarities and differences.  


Please can you make sure you child has their PE kit in school by Monday and that they bring their book bags every day.


Please continue to read with your child daily and make use of their Reading Buddy for additional reading books.


On Wednesday we will be visiting the Synagogue so please ensure that you have sent in your permission slips and funds to cover the coach cost.

What a week!


We have had such a busy week this week!  We have continued our learning about the Victorians and compared our clothes and our toys.  This is all good preparation for our Victorian day Thursday next week!  Hopefully you will all be able to find Victorian styled clothes so that we can all come dressed and ready for the day.


One of the big highlights of the week was going to the synagogue and having the opportunity to have a look at the Torah and try some Challah bread too!  


Finally, in 1 Willow we have finished Charlie and the Chocolate factory!  It has been great reading this chapter book, I recommend asking the children what their favourite part of the story was.
