I can get into role and express myself as a Victorian character.
Next week, we are having a Victorian Day. Children have been asked to come dressed as a Victorian character and produce a piece of work about their character. They will be asked to talk about their work for five minutes on Victorian Day.
This piece of work could be:
- A PowerPoint
- A biography
- A timeline
- A cartoon strip about your life in Victorian times
- An interview with you answering questions about your life
or, of course, your own idea!
Remember: stick to one page in your homework book and extend the page if you need to!

Our policy is not to give homework in the holidays. However, if you’d like to support your child’s learning at home, have a look at the Homework Tips for Parents (which has ideas for extra practice) and the National Expectations section (which should give you some ideas about what to learn more about).
Don’t forget: all children should be reading on a daily basis: comics, books, websites. Why not make a trip to the library this holiday?
Older children should also practise times tables (why not re-cap all the tables you’ve practised so far this year?).
