Great Horwood Church of England School Where children play, learn and grow together


Our topic for Autumn 2 is the Victorians


Within this topic, our class text is A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens and we will be focusing on writing letters, poetry and pieces to describe character, setting and atmosphere. 


In Science we are learning all about light and linking this to both the Victorians (the electric light bulb) and Christmas (Jesus light of the world).


In RE the children will be investigating the questions 'Was Jesus the Messiah?' and linking this to the Christian celebration of Christmas and the true meaning of this.


Our PSHE this money is about money which links perfectly with our class text, A Christmas Carol. Within this, the children will be exploring what financial terms mean and how borrowing and saving work. The children will also be given the opportunity to think about enterprise and creating their own business idea, considering the financial obligations and risks along the way.


The children will also be given the opportunity to learn about Christmas cooking and will be making and serving mince pies to visitors during the Key Stage One nativity performances.
