Watch this clip of Fagin and notice the 'treasure' he has in the box. What kinds of things do you think are in there? What might he have stolen from rich ladies and gentlemen?

Ron Moody-Reviewing the Situation

Activity: Story Sale


Choose an object from Oliver Twist and advertise - write a “For Sale notice”

e.g. For Sale - The golden pendant. Straight from the treasure box of Fagin, the genuine article...    (Silk scarf, Jewelled watch ….)

Edit and Refine: Check you have used good descriptive language and be persuasive – you are trying to sell it!

Items you could try and sell.....

Begin to record words that you have collected while learning about Oliver Twist and the Victorian period. Write them in groups depending on what type of word they are. These will help you with your writing.

Adjectives                  Nouns                   Verbs                  Adverbs


Where would the words copper, pauper, workhouse, pickpocketed go?

You may have learnt more words from watching the videos and listening to the audio version of the story.

Listen to part 3

See if you can identify what apps/social media platforms these logos represent and the age restriction. Google the answer - you might be surprised. Why do you think these apps have these restrictions?

Before we do some more work on line graphs, we will revise long multiplication. If you are still struggling to remember your times tables, you must make sure you spend some time every day practising these. Use 'Hit the Button' or Times Table Rock Stars'.

Here are some calculations to practise (I will put up a video to model the method below).

765 x 89

Diary Writing


A diary is a personal record of events, thoughts, and feelings. It is usually arranged in chronological order - the order in which things happen in.

It can be handwritten and private, published for sale or might be uploaded to the internet as a blog. It could also take the form of a video diary or vlog.

A diary can be many things – a place to keep private thoughts, a record of events, or simply an entertaining story. We can read them to compare emotions and experiences with others or to experience a stranger's world.

A successful diary might not sell millions of copies or even be published at all. It might simply be passed on to future generations, help us to focus on our lives, work out our thoughts and values, and see how we change as we grow older.

Watch this clip to find out how to write a successful diary.

Oliver! I'd Do Anything (Musical 1968)

Keep going with the diary entries you started yesterday. Think about when Oliver would be writing these and how he would be feeling at each stage in the story. Make sure you have listened to all of 'Part 3'.

If you fancy a challenge, these are tricky. Choose a few of these questions to answer in full sentences. Be as clear as you can, referring to the text for evidence.

Spelling rule 1. How many more words can you think of?

Science - Classification (28.01.21)

Hi Class 6, I hope that enjoyed classifying the animals in your zoo last week. This week I would like you to research Carl Linnaeus, the scientist who developed the single method of classification that scientists still use today. I have included some links to information which you might want to use or maybe you can find out some facts of your own. Once you have researched, your task is to create a factual poster to display your research. Remember a poster should provide information in a clear and interesting way. I have included a link to an  example for you to look at. I look forward to seeing your work.

Write diary entry 3. If you haven't done a diary entry when Oliver arrived at Mr Brownlow's house, do this today. If you have, choose another time that Oliver would write in his diary.

We looked at pictures of Fagin's den and compared it to the house of Mr Brownlow. What would Oliver think of his house? Start by thinking of some adjectives to describe each setting.

 If you haven't already, have a go at some of the reading comprehension questions I posted yesterday.
