This half term, we have been exploring about life during the Victorian times. We have been comparing school life during the 21st Century with the Victorian era! We all agreed that would prefer to come to Brighton Avenue School now! Take a look at us reinacting life during this tough and dreadful time period.

During Computing lessons (focusing on Computational Thinkers), we have been learning about the common algorithms that computers use. We played 'Guess my Number' before discussing how this could be programmed on a Computer, using programmes like Scratch. We discussed the differences between different searches that we use on computers.
PE- Football and Hockey Warm Up Activities

We have loved working together to get our hearts racing during a range of circuit activities. Following on from this, we have loved developing a range of skills to apply into team games of Football and Hockey.
During D&T lessons, we are going to be designing and creating our own Titanic rooms. In the first lesson, we researched the decor of 20th Century rooms and used this to sketch what the rooms in the Titanic would have looked like. We researched the different designs on wallpaper, carpet and furniture in this time period. Keep looking back on this page to see our finished Titanic rooms!
