As part of our Home Learning for this term, Class 6 were set the challenge of producing a project inspired by Queen Victoria and the British Empire during Victorian Britain.  We were so impressed with the superb quality of homework projects that were produced, ranging from marvellous models to informative presentations, from excellent written pieces of work to some very tasty treats that we got to sample in class. You have all done an amazing job, Year 6! Well done!

Below are just a selection of our homework projects to give you a flavour of what we've been doing.

In preparation for our Art Exhibition later this term, we have been looking at the work of Mexican artist, Frida Kahlo.  We used Frida's self-portraits as a source of inspiration for our portraiture and, like Kahlo, we thought carefully about using bold, block colours and including natural forms in our pieces.  Our masterpieces were created using oil pastels and we think they look absolutely fantastic.  Below are some of our budding artists sharing their finished pieces.  Well done, Class 6!


As part of our topic on Famous Victorians, Class 6 have been learning about the work of Isambard Kingom Brunel. We visited the S.S. Great Britain, which is on our school’s doorstep in the Floating Harbour. During the visit, we learned all about the ship and some of the passengers that sailed on board the world’s first iron-hulled, steam powered passenger liner. We also enjoyed having the opportunity to dress up as Victorian passengers and you can see some photos from our day below. You can check back soon for more photos from our visit.

By Clicking Here, you can access the Brunel inspired 'Full Steam Ahead' game that was mentioned as part of our workshop during our S.S. Great Britain visit. Once on the site, if you enter the code 1843SCHOOLS you will be able to explore all levels and play the exclusive classroom version of the game.  Good luck!


We'd love to hear what you think about our Class 6 page or, if you're a member of Class 6,  what you're enjoying doing in school. You can do this by leaving a comment below.

It was founded by King George V by royal proclamation on 17 July 1917, when he changed the name of the British Royal Family from the German Saxe-Coburg and Gotha to the English Windsor, due to the anti-German sentiment in the British Empire during World War I .
