Oliver Twist

This week is BOOK WEEK, which began with a memorable production of OLIVER TWIST on Monday morning, by ‘M and M Theatre’ Productions Company, who come in every year to treat us to their own version of Children’s Classics.

In Year 5, we have based all our English learning on the story of ‘Oliver Twist’ this week and will continue to do so next week too. We are reading the abridged version of Charles Dickens’ moral tale, having now completed our study of ‘Stormbreaker’.

The children have also been planning and writing a Discussion text about ‘Was it acceptable for poor children to steal in Victorian times ?’. The children are  using their TW4 ( Talk for Writing) skills to write a Biography of Oliver Twist next week, recapping and revising some of the key skills learned in Year 4.
