Factory short story

Students are to complete a short story on life in a mill in the 1800s. We have discussed how to do this in class and students have 3 sheets – 2 for information and 1 with the success criteria on it. The minimum is 1.5 pages of their exercise books.

How did 13 year olds spend their time in the 1800s?

Students are to complete worksheet 24, following the instructions. I have also gone through this in class. They have been told if they need plain paper for their own 24 hour clock, to get it from my room.

Students have been given an extra week to do this homework due to me being on a school trip when they next have history. Therefore there’s no excuses for not doing it! Any “lost” sheets can be replaced before the lesson so students should complete it well in advance – they can hand it to me if completed early!

Farming Essay

Students are to complete their essay on farming. We went through this in class. Minimum is one page of exercise book. Any issues, see Mrs Cullen at lunchtimes.

Making of the UK

Students are to complete their Making of the UK posters. They can come up to my room at lunchtimes to work together, borrow glues, felts, coloured pens or coloured card, if needed
