Summer 1 - Revolution
During our Revolution topic we are going to find out about super strict schools by travelling back in time to a Victorian classroom. We will make sure that we’re on our best behaviour though, as punishments are unquestionably terrible. We will be discovering a time when great minds thought new thoughts and ingenious inventors created so many things that we take for granted today: the electric light bulb, the telephone and the first flushing toilet. We’ll forge ahead to research a time when Victoria was Queen and Albert was Prince Consort, and when some people lived in slums while others prospered.
At Fernhurst, Years 5 and 6 do joint topics which will run over a two-year cycle to ensure that children do not repeat a certain topic. This will be a great way to plan as a team and enable us to provide learning for the children which is more exciting than ever!
