In our recent English lessons our objective has been to persuade. Utilising our Reading Skills story ‘A Christmas Carol’ (Dickens) we applied our learnt skills to write to Ebenezer Scrooge to advocate that Bob Crotchet should have Christmas day off from work and Tiny Tim should receive medical help.
We have linked our learning in History about the Victorians to our creativity in Art lessons and have applied our knowledge of William Morris’s floral wall paper patterns to create our own festive themed designs. Additionally, we have found out how Victorian people went to school, were resourceful and creative with their games. This connected with our homework projects.
