We have learned in school how huge changes happened in Britain during Victorian times. Let's learn about Queen Victoria. Watch the video below.

Queen Victoria kept a diary and collected photographs.

In your exercise book that is in your folder; in the English end of the book I would like you to write a diary entry for today 23/3/20. It is an historic day: children working at home; schools closed; the Coronavirus outbreak. Write a diary entry capturing what is going on in your life and in the World right now. Write something that you will be able to look back on and share with people in the future.
Now borrow or use your phone and take a special photo - a photo that sums up this historic day - maybe you could email it to me to share?

Sometime before you go to bed find 10-15 minutes to read a book...somewhere quiet. Record it in your orange Reading Diary.
