Does the Camera Ever Lie?

Our Topic for the Summer Term is 'Does the Camera Ever Lie?'

Within this the children will cover many areas of the National Curriculum.

Before the May half term we were able to visit the National Science and Media Museum in Bradford to gain an insight into photography, the functions of a camera and how Science plays a big role within this. We thoroughly enjoyed this hands - on, interactive experience.

Our classroom reading corner has also turned into a Photography Studio.


Reciprocal Reading

As a class we have really engaged with the novel 'Street Child' by Berlie Doherty as part of the Reciprocal Reading scheme. We have undertaken work which has allowed us to predict, clarify, question and summarise. Here are some extracts of reviews that we have written:

'A scary bit of the book was when Grimy Nick came to the circus that Jim was in. I learnt that it is very hard living the life of a poor, orphan child.'

'I learnt in the 1860's there was no middle class, only rich and poor people. My favourite part was when Jim found Rosie.'

'This story made me feel lucky to have my Mum and Dad.'

'I learnt that there was a hospital called and made by Dr. Barnardo.'

'This book is very fun to read, you think things are going to get better and they get worse! I loved how Jim never gave up.'

'This story is about the life of Jim and the on going toughness he has to face to get through the unfair Victorian times. This book is exciting and interesting and makes you want to read on.'
