Kere Class

In History we are focusing on the local area. We have looked at an overall chronology of historical time periods initially. After this we looked at what Fleetwood and Blackpool area was like before the victorian era, using primary and secondary source materials and discussing their reliability and usefulness. We then looked at what made the Fylde coast so popular amongst victorian and Edwardian tourists and made our own brochures to convince them to visit. We will continue to focus on the development of the area within the victorian and edwardian periods.

Role-play in Hadid Class

In history we have been learning about how Victorian schools were different from our own. We have learnt about the punishments children received for talking in class and the lessons they learnt in school. The children thought it would be a good idea to have separate lessons for girls and boys but didn't think it very fair that girls learnt sewing and cooking and the boys got to learn carpentry!

Kestrel Class have been researching facts about Stonehenge and we have made posters too.

Learning about the ancient Egyptians from one who knows!

Peregrine Class - History brought to life


Peregrine class had an extra special trip to the library today. We were invited to join in a history/drama workshop, based on the Ancient Egyptians. The theme was mummification and all the gory details, perfect for Halloween. It was informative and great fun, the children loved it.   

In Hobby class we have been busy bees. As part of our Victorian topic we have learnt about Victorian schools, had a teddy bear's picnic, watched a Punch and Judy show and visited Fleetwood museum to find out facts we can use in our writing.

Michelangelo class - learning all about 'The Great Plague'


Astley Hall


Our trip to Astley Hall yesterday was fantastic. We learnt all about The Plague. We made our own posies after picking herbs from the garden, dressed up as the plague doctor, looked at different tools and instruments used to treat the plague and then even looked around to see what it would have been like in the days of the plague for rich and poor people. Take a look at our pictures below to see what a wonderful day we had.
