Spring Term 1
We hope that you've all had a wonderful Christmas break and are ready to get started with our new topic: 'It's a Child's Life'.
We will be looking at toys from the past and comparing them to modern day toys, especially the ones the children received for Christmas. We will be encouraging children to talk to you and older relatives about the toys you played with and how they are different from their toys. Wouldn't it be wonderful if you could find some of the toys to share with them?
A highlight of this unit is always the Victorian Day where children are asked to come dressed as a Victorian school child and find out, first hand, what it would've been like to attend school in the 1800's. We will be sending more information on this shortly.
This term we will also be setting an 'optional' home learning project for the children to undertake if they choose to.
Please see our knowledge organiser below to gain more of an insight in to the content taught this term.
