Welcome To Class 9
Our topic this term is, “We are not amused!” We have started to learn about the life of Queen Victoria.
We began our topic with a traditional tea party. We enjoyed Victoria sponge cake and learnt about the etiquette of a Victorian tea party. We even had a special visitor, who was not amused that we were eating her cake!
We learnt about the main events in Queen Victoria’s life and ordered them on a timeline.
In Computing we have been researching facts about Queen Victoria’s life. We then presented this on a word document and learnt how to insert pictures.
In PE we have been learning about dance. We have learnt a Victorian dance routine called The Grand March and began to add on our own movements.
We worked together in small groups to create a simple circuit in our Science learning about electricity. This took a lot of perseverance and team work!
In Maths we have been learning about place value. We can read numbers up to 999,999, order them and compare them. We are confident at finding 1000 more and less than a given number and we can also round numbers to the nearest 10, 100 and 1,000.
In English we have been reading the text, The Secret Garden. We loved using drama techniques to find out what each of the characters were feeling.
