In the Gorillas class, we look to the past to help us learn about the present. We look at historical eras such as the Ancient Greeks and The Victorians and look at how they have impacted today’s society and we look at these times through the eyes of a child to help us empathise with children of the time.
During our learning, we strive to be active learners: enquiring to deepen our understanding, being involved in-class discussion, and supporting our peers when they need help. We take pride in our individuality and enjoy sharing our hobbies and achievements with the whole class at the end of the day.
This year, we visit the historic site of Beaumanor Hall to learn more about the Victorian country house and experience what life would have been like for a child growing up during The Victorian period.
In our science sessions, we work with partners to plan, conduct and evaluate different experiments. Our topics this year include forces, space, materials, and more.
