Nightingales

Welcome to Term 2 - Children of the Revolution

In this term we will be focusing on the Victorian period. Learning about the life of Queen Victoria and the changes that happened during her reign. We will also be focusing on what life was like for children during this period - thinking about the differences and similarities between now and then, as well as the differences and similarities of coming from a Rich or Poor background.

 

 We will also be looking at what a Victorian Christmas may have been like, looking at where some of our modern day traditions have come from. In addition to this we will look at planning and cooking our own Victorian Christmas meal - let's just hope this is as the Rich families would have had their Christmas!

Week 2 - 11th September.

This week we have been studying Solids, Liquids and Gases and as part of this conducted an experiment to make Sneaky Slime. We worked really hard on writing our instructions for this process, making sure we used imperative verbs and then some of us were brave enough to become presenters of our own TV show to show how to make Sneaky Slime. All the camera work was our own work too!

Welcome Nightingales to Term 1

 

This term we will be learning how to perfect potions. How do you mix potions safely? What was medicine like without anaesthetic? If something is a solid can it also be a liquid or a gas?

To find out the answers to these and many more questions we will be conducting our own experiments, predicting outcomes and recording our investigations. As well as looking at the history of medicine. So grab your potion bottles, safety goggles and lab coats and let's see what we can mix up!

 

Please see the documents attached below for useful information about what we have planned for our first term.
