We are studying the Victorians this term in History, although this is linked with many other subjects. We will be reading a book called 'Cogheart' by Peter Bunzl in literacy, a fantastic dystopian story set in Victorian Britain. We will be looking at Victorian artists in Art.

In Science, we are going to be studying Forces and Magnets.

Musical Instruments

All instruments need to be in school every Thursday.

We will be learning our brass instruments on Thursday afternoons at 2.30. Please make sure that you have your instrument in school!! I would recommend that you all take home your instruments each week and practice as much as you can. I am learning the trumpet too and have found that even playing for 5 minutes whenever I can has really helped me to improve. Practice makes perfect!
