Autumn Term

 

In year 6 we started the year by going back in time to the 19th century. We are learning all about the Victorians and what life was like in our area during the Victorian era. We are studying the classic novel 'Oliver Twist' by Charles Dickens and the children have been getting in role and acting out the famous scene where Oliver asks for more.
