Spring term topic
During the spring term, we will be working with a focus on the Industrial Revolution in Britain, particularly in terms of trade and transport.
Our class text for the spring term will be Street Child by Berlie Doherty. Unfortunately, I have not been able to find a pdf version of this text, therefore you may wish to purchase children their own copies to use in class and to read at home. The story will be the stimulus for much of our English work and will deepen children's understanding of our topic as well.
For the second half term our new topic will be The Victorians. We aim to focus on different aspects of this historical period, but with a particular focus on colonialism.
Our class text remain Wonder by R.J. Palacio and children still have access to both the digital text and Youtube read-along versions to aid their studies.
