Year Three Victorian Workbook

by Primary Star

Please click ‘read more’ for a full description of this Year Three workbook which is aimed as an end of year consolidation / extension summer activity or summer term project for parents or teachers to use with their children.

Please note, THIS IS, FIRST AND FOREMOST, A WORKBOOK INTENDED FOR PAPERBACK – HOWEVER IT IS ALSO BEING PUBLISHED AS AN E-BOOK FOR THE CONVENIENCE OF READERS WHO MAY WISH TO SEE SOME OF THE CONTENT ELECTRONICALLY (FOR EXAMPLE, ON AN INTERACTIVE WHITEBOARD). PLEASE DO THOUGH BE AWARE OF THE POTENTIAL LIMITATIONS OF HAVING THIS IN E-FORMAT INSTEAD OF PAPERBACK.

PLEASE SEE BELOW THE DESCRIPTION FOR THE PAPERBACK:

This cross-curricular 100 page workbook opens the Victorian world to children whilst also helping them to practise some of the Year Three curriculum (based on some of the expectations of the 2014 National Curriculum in England). Children will learn about or answer questions relating to Queen Victoria, Prince Albert, the Kennel Club, Big Ben, Alfred Lord Tennyson, George Cadbury, Elizabeth Fry, the Gospel of Matthew 25:35-40, Michael Faraday, Thomas Edison, Charles Darwin, Lewis Carroll, Alexander Bell, Sherlock Holmes, Baker Street underground station, the Greenwich foot tunnel, Isamgard Kingdom Brunel and St Teresa of Lisieux.

The book is dedicated to St Teresa of Lisieux, currently the author’s favourite Victorian! It ends with the prayer, “St Teresa, spare a rose for me!”

Questions involve Roman numerals, sketching, proverbs, column subtraction, research, telling the time, alliteration, reading with expression and intonation, using a dictionary, writing instructions, answering word problems, looking up a Bible reference, rules of dialogue, fractions, handwriting practice, and filling in missing full stops.

The workbook is set out with questions / activities in purple, with a ‘Challenge’ as an extension for more able children in blue, and a checklist to encourage proofreading and checking in red, hopefully making it easier for children of different abilities to access this work, and also for children of different abilities to complete the same booklet at the same time without the need for too much adult intervention.

Answers are however NOT included, so adult support and involvement with the completion of the workbook is recommended. For teachers, this would be a matter of course in the classroom anyway (and you will find that the answers are not too tricky to find), and for parents, it is often an enjoyable thing to have a project to work on with your child, and to get an idea of where they are with questions which are aimed towards a Year Three curriculum.



The Culture of Beauty 2: A Research Paper: Hair, Race, & Age (Beauty Culture)

by Destiny S. Harris

As women, we often forget that we are simply beautiful without making any adjustments to our faces and bodies. We also forget that there are other types of beauty aside from physical beauty. Though these are simple truths, we often live our lives constantly trying to enhance our bodies in some shape or form to be more beautiful and to appear more attractive to ourselves and others.

This book derived from a research paper I completed at the University of Georgia. I felt it necessary to expand on the paper because beauty culture affects numerous people across the globe, which makes it a relevant topic. The culture of beauty often affects people in ways they don’t even realize. This piece will explore the reasons behind why people choose to engage in beauty enhancing techniques; whether a person’s reasons are autonomous or due to conformity can often be difficult to distinguish.

Part 2 of the Beauty Culture Series dissects the following topics: age, hair, and race.
