Welcome to Year 6
Summer half term (2)
Our topic this half term is
Darwin and The Revolution
Welcome to the Victorian Era.
What was life like for children in the Victorian era? What was Solihull like? How did people travel around, what jobs did they do and what important discoveries were made?
During this half term we will be looking at information, relics and the many traces and legacies of Victorian activities we have around us to form a picture of this exciting period of British history.
We will be focussing on the many historical events and moments that shaped the Victorian period, such as the Great Exhibition, rail travel, workhouses (including that one still to be found in Solihull) and of course Queen Victoria and Prince Albert.
In Science, we will be learning about how living things have changed over time and how fossils provide information about living things which inhabited the earth millions of years ago. They will also explore inheritance and how animals and plants are adapted to suit their environment.
