We will be considering how the effects of social, technological and scientific advances had an impact on everyday life. In addition, our art work will be studying our class artists who were influential during Victorian Times. Later on in the term we will be linking with our theme in DT by designing and making lavender bags.

In literacy we will be reading the text Street Child by Berlie Doherty. This story tells how a boy named Jim Jarvis fought against the hardships of Victorian life including the workhouse and living on the streets. It tells of his survival with the help of Dr Barnardo. The children will be studying the book through analysing characters and their journey and considering what life was like for many during the Victorian Age.
