 Wednesday 20th May - Friday 22nd May- Victorian project 

 

I would like you to spend the next three days of English lessons completing your Victorian project. To start or end your project I would like you to create a Word Art picture like the example above. Below is a step by step guide on how to do this! It's great fun !

 

Once you have done that please complete your History project- you should have written the introduction already and now need to focus on the chapters about each different area of Victorian life. Remember you are writing as if you are a time traveller- see example below. It's up to you how many chapters you have (between 3 and 5 would be good though!)- they are only short chapters focusing on the good and bad of each area.  This needs to be a really neat piece of work! Edit carefully, check punctuation, check each sentence makes sense! 

 

 

2 = Now write your chapters: give each one a title and write making it really clear what you think is good and bad. You can do this by using the following

Good

Bad

wonderful    beautiful

great   impressive

amazing   better   improved

awful   terrible

hard   difficult

unpleasant  unacceptable

 

Chapter 1 Homes and towns

Staggering slowly out of my time machine, I find myself in a Victorian town. I am impressed by the beautiful buildings around me. The banks look like temples. There are wide streets and parks. These seem better than the Tudor times we studied earlier in the year. Pleased to see this, I walk further into the town. All of a sudden, I notice a strange and unpleasant smell. It is the odour of toilets! Behind the amazing buildings are very different streets. These are crowded and have dirt on them and the buildings look run down. Stepping carefully (I don’t know what I am walking in!) into one of the houses I see that they are packed with many people. The walls are damp and the windows (if there are any) are broken. The people here look poor and sickly.

 Reading- Read the final two chapters of ' Animal Boy' or ' Around the world in Eighty minutes'- complete the tasks on Purple Mash  

 

 Monday 18th May- Researching Scientists   

 

As part of our Science this week I would like you to find out about a famous Scientist and create an information page about them. I have attached below some notes about different Scientists. Purple Mash has a page about it too if you type 'Scientists' in the 'Search' box. 

 

Using Purple Mash please create a web page of information about your chosen Scientist. Try and include facts about them, a picture of them, why they are important, how did their work change our lives today?  

 

If you would rather not use Purple Mash to present your ideas I have included a web map sheet below you can fill in instead.
