smileyWelcome to 5RBsmiley



Term One


This term, we will be learning all about the Victorians. 

Class Reader

This is the book that we will be enjoying reading as a class this term:

English: Recounts - Diary Entries


For our first English unit, we will be doing a 'Take One Book' unit with the fantastic novel Street Child by Berlie Doherty. Take a look at our learning journey to see what we will be doing.

Topic: History


Using our teamwork skills, we worked together to make our own class timeline so that we could learn about when the Victorian era started and ended. We discussed chronological order and how time is split into different segments like centuries and decades. Then, we were given different event cards to sort into three piles: before the Victorian era, during the Victorian era and after the Victorian era. We had to use our history detective skills to try to work out when we thought events happened. We used our oracy skills to explain our answers and ideas to the rest of the class.
