Pie Corbett style short story set in Victorian times anyone...?!

Discussion in 'Primary' started by moonlighttail, Aug 15, 2011.

  1. Our school follows Pie's talk for writing methods religiously and I am looking for a story for my Year 5 children to learn set in Victorian times? Needs to follow theme (e.g. finding story, defeating the monster story, loosing story....) and be about 300-400 words.
    Anyone come across/written anything like this? Fairly new to talk for writing but know there are some schools out there who are well established.
    Thanks
     
  2. Not sure what PIE is ? Anyway, " The Red Room" is a classic.

  5. I use Chimney Charlie
    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Chimney-Charlie-Victorian-Sweeps-Sparks/dp/0749635517/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1313439635&sr=8-1
    in conjunction with a poem The Chimney Boy's Story by Wes Magee http://www.poetryarchive.org/childrensarchive/singlePoem.do?poemId=379

    I also use an abridged version of Oliver Twist in conjunction with the film. Children really enjoy it and I use it for a wide variety of writing and drama with pleasing results http://www.amazon.co.uk/Oliver-Twist-Gill-Tavner/dp/1906230005/ref=pd_sim_b_4

    Hope this is of some help. This is my favourite literacy unit. Assume it is linked to your history too.
