Topic – Inventors and Explorers

Which British Inventors had a significant impact on our lives during the Victorian era? 

Task 1

Draw, label and describe one or two of the British inventions that you like and say why you like it.

Inventions

Task 2

Can you compare and contrast two of the inventions as you consider how they are similar and how they are different? If you were to take an invention from today, back to the Victorian era, what would you take and why? It should be useful to them

 

Science

If we were in school we were going to create a simple electrical circuit to make a bulb light.  Go to Education City and have a go at the activities set for Electricity.

 

Look at Winter:  

  • Landscape. 
  • Weather. 
  • Length of the day

 

Go for a walk or go into your garden and observe the landscape.

What does the land scape look like?  .  

Compare it to how it would have looked like  in Autumn. What are the differences? 

Think about the weather, the amount of light and the length of the day. 

Choose how you wish to record their discoveries.

 

RE

Philosophy: How did the Universe come to be? (Hindu/ Christian)

Screw up a piece of paper and drop it on the floor. 

What just happened and why?

Adults – At this point they may suggest a force that pulls things to the ground, they may name gravity. Ask them to discuss what made gravity?

Using a set of dominoesset up a track on the floor. Think about the various causes of collapse as they go ‘who caused that?’ but keep it light and cheerful. ‘Fred touched that one…’ ‘Why?’ ‘because Theo jogged his hand.’ ‘What caused Theo to jog his hand?’ ‘Ruby brushed past him.’ Etc. Once the domino course has been set up ask them what could possibly start them falling? A gust of wind? A hand? An earthquake? What might cause these things? Talk to them about the beginning of the world or universe. Ask them how did it start? What if all the dominoes are different actions and each one is linked in a chain, from the beginning of the universe to this lesson? How do you start the chain and make the actions happen? Discuss this and then nominate someone to flick the first domino. 

Show a clock or watch – even just a picture of one. This could also be any other complicated object that has been made by machine or human hands. Where did this object come from? The children should explore the idea of it being made, put together using certain parts and materials. Additional questions: Where did the metal/materials come from?

 

ART

Look at your sketches and pictures from last week.

The Great Fire of London 1

The Great Fire of London 2
