Welcome to Wildcats Class!
In our class, we aim to be the best we can. To help us do this, we collaborate and investigate with each other to maximise our learning time. We love to explore and share our experiences!
We are resilient! We are the Wildcats!
Our topic - Revolution - focuses on the history of Victorian Britain.
"Are you listening, boy? What is twenty-seven plus forty-five? Come on - faster now, we haven't got all day!"
Find out about super-strict schools by travelling back in time to a Victorian classroom. Make sure you're on your best behaviour though, as punishments are unquestionably terrible!
Discover a time when great minds thought new thoughts and ingenious inventors created so many things we take for granted today: the electric light bulb, the telephone and even the modern flushing toilet!
You might even get to invent things yourself in the Victorian Dragon's Den...
We will research a time when Victoria was Queen and Albert was Prince Consort - when some people lived in slums while others prospered.
Victorian Memorable Experiences - Wildcats very much enjoyed getting into the roles of Victorian children and experienced what life might have been like at school during the Victorian era. Victorian copperplate writing, the drill and parlour games were some of the activities that the children took part in.
Cannon Hall - The children also visited Cannon Hall where they experienced life as Victorian servant. They had to work in the wash room where they washed the Lord and Lady's clothes and they also had to prepare their food too.
Famous Victorians - Wildcats studied the work of Isambard Kingdom Brunel and completed a DT project to build bridges. They studied different types of bridges, designed and made their own and then evaluated it.
