London life

6 November 2017

Year 8 English students visited The Dickens Museum and the Foundling Museum last week, for a flavour of the worlds depicted in the texts they've been studying.

The students have been reading Jamila Gavin's Coram Boy and various Dickens novels.  


They took part in a range of activities: role play and sketching at the Foundling Museum, as well as discussing the paintings and artefacts there.


After a guided tour of The Dickens Museum, they took part in a workshop, studied drafts of A Christmas Carol and used quill pens for their own descriptive writing.
