Are you listening? What is 27 plus 45? Come on, faster now. We haven’t got all day. Find out about super strict schools by travelling back in time to a Victorian classroom. Make sure that you’re on your best behaviour though, as punishments are unquestionably terrible. Discover a time when great minds thought new thoughts and ingenious inventors created so many things that we take for granted today: the electric light bulb, the telephone and the first flushing toilet. Let’s forge ahead to research a time when Victoria was Queen and Albert was Prince Consort, and when some people lived in slums while others prospered. Take on the role of an important reformer and present your good causes to the Queen. Can you gain the support of a wealthy sponsor? Full steam ahead to the Victorian age.

Novel Study - Holes

 

In English this term we will be looking at a range of text types including: character descriptions, setting descriptions, diary entries and letters. Our class novel is Holes by Louis Sachar—a brilliant story that has already captured the imagination of the children! The children have begun planning their own diary entries. I have challenged the class to write a diary entry from the perspective of a character who has been sent to Camp Green Lake (the fictional setting for Holes). In spelling and grammar lessons, children will learn to use co-ordinating and subordinating conjunctions to improve the complexity of their sentences. Children will also learn to use a greater range of punctuation.
