For the rest of this half term Year 4 will be reading the book and watching the film of Oliver which was originally written by Charles Dickens and is based during the 19th century, an area of London history we will be covering and learning more about in History with our London across the ages topic.
Below is the trailer for the film we are watching in class.
How would you describe Oliver's feelings at different parts of the trailer?
How do you think life would have been like during the 19th century?
At the start of the half term Year 4 looked at the important elements of play scripts and tried to write our own play script based on the short video below called La Luna. In class we discussed the importance of writing a detailed setting and character descriptions focusing on using adjectives, adverbs and similes before starting to write our own play script using stage directions to indicate what the character's actions and expression are.
