Mr.Roden has been asking for more from Rivington with regards to their narrative writing. We have been reading and responding to both ‘Scrooge’ and ‘Oliver Twist’ adaptations by one of the most famous of Victorian writers, Charles Dickens. The children have taken part in lots of drama activities to get into the role of the protagonists and have produced some outstanding writing based on the stories.

In science and topic, the children have been looking at how the Railways changed the face of Britain and life in Victorian times. Most notably, they have looked at the creation of ‘The Rocket’ by inventor and designer George Stephenson. The children have then converted this into writing and their own steam train design as part of their moving mechanism book.
