This week we have been looking carefully at what life was like for those children who were lucky enough to go to school during the Victorian era.   We compared their experiences to our own by reading parts of Dicken’s ‘Nicholas Nicolby’ and doing research on the internet.

Once again we used mind maps to plan out our ideas and paid particular attention to finding our own style and ‘voice’ as writers.   Click to hear our results.

    Great work Year 6. I have been showing this post to lots of people (or letting them listen to it). They are really impressed at how well you have got to grips with the subject of Victorian school life. I saw two of you recording your work. It looked incredibly easy. The blog is generating interest from around the world with many visitors. Keep posting!
