Silver Class' Victorian Board is really coming along
Biography Writing - Jane Pinny, A Victorian Housemaid
ArtyGrams - Investigating Michael Faraday
Today, the children in Orange and Silver Class have been taking part in the Oakum Picking Championship. They all learnt about the Victorian workhouses by studying a range of primary and secondary sources and then set about picking the rope apart, just like the poor children in the workhouses had to do. It wasn't easy and took a long time - it made us appreciate what the children in workhouses went through - such a hard job and all for just a bowl of gloopy gruel!
Week Beginning 11th November 2019
What a great week the children have had. The writing that the children produced was absolutely incredible. The children wrote diary entries from the point of view of Jane Pinny, a poor, Victorian Housemaid. They really used their knowledge of Victorian Britain to create thoughtful and homorous pieces of writing, including skills such as: non standard English, fronted adverbials and extended noun phrases.
The children have also been passionate this week when learning about bullying and what we can do to help. They created a poem about how bullying can have a lasting impact as we get older and have drawn logos and badges to create a message about anti-bullying.
