We have been reading the book 'Journey' by Aaron Becker in which a girl finds a mysterious crayon. She uses it to draw a series of magical craft including a boat, a flying carpet and a hot air balloon. Before reading the text, we used PEE (Point, evidence, explain) to make predictions about what would happen. After we had read the text we wrote poems imagining what we would draw and where we would go.
We have been learning about the Victorian era. We have explored life in a Victorian workhouse through the novel 'Workhouse' by Pamela Oldfield and discovered what Victorian schools were really like when we visited the Ragged School museum.
