Hello new Blue Class,
I hope you are all enjoying the holidays and are having lots of fun and rest in preparation for a very exciting year ahead! As you know, our first topic is The Victorians and the super art work you did when we spent an afternoon together is proudly on display in your new classroom ready for your return. We have planned lots of exciting and challenging learning for you during this topic including a trip to a Victorian town. I thought it might be fun to dress up as Victorians too on the trip to help us really feel like we've stepped back in time.
With plenty of time left before you come back to school, you might like to get your brains buzzing and do your own learning at home. Life was very varied during the Victorian times with many different jobs for men, women and children such as miners, chimney sweeps, bakers, blacksmiths, servants, stable hands, bankers... Have a go at researching some of these and choose a job you find interesting (not necessarily one that you would want!). You can then choose how you want to present what you've discovered. You may want to:
* produce a diary describing what life was like;
* create art work showing what the job was like;
* produce a job advert;
* role play what it was like;
* make a board game linked to the job;
* produce a timeline of a typical day...
The choice is yours. You can bring in any work you do on the first day back and share it with the class.
Enjoy the rest of the holidays and I’ll see you bright and breezy on Wednesday 5th September. I’m really looking forward to it.

P.S. Remember to pick up and enjoy a book too and revisit those times tables you learned with Mrs Dudek to check that you know them by heart. It will make such a difference to your learning when you come back to school.
