Victorian Inventors

Watch the short video below to see our P7 projects on Victorian Inventors, they really are amazing!

Living History lesson

On Thursday 7th October, the P7 class welcomed staff from ABC council to facilate a living history session.    The children learned about our local area through different eras in the past.  The children had a                     ball and learnt so much.

Artist study -

Henri Rousseau
Over the past few weeks P6 & 7 have studied some of Henri Rousseau’s work.  They then recreated some of his most famous pieces.  Have a look through our ‘virtual’ gallery and see which ones you like the most. 

Non-Chronological report writing

P7 have worked really hard to research and write non-chronological reports based on Victorian workshouses.  The children researched using the internet, library books and text books.  They then planned, drafted and edited their work to end up with first class reports. 

I'm sure you'll agree that they look amazing (and are full of facts)!

WAU & Flowering plants

Our WAU topic is Flowering plants, we have been dissecting Tulips to look at the different sections.  We have explored different types of seed dispersal and we are beginning to make animations based on our findings. 

We made sure we word disposable gloves and goggles to protect ourselves from the pollen.

Exploring capacity

We explored the topic of capacity using real life containers and the water tray.  Having fun whilst learning!

More lessons like these to continue.
