Welcome to

Gatcombe Park Primary School

Teamwork - Respect - Aim High

Week beginning 29th June

Your task this week is to create a biography of a famous Victorian man called Thomas Barnardo.  supporting the very poor children in Victorian times was his mission, and his work is still recognised today; a charity in his name continues the work he started.  Ospreys in school did this task last week - there are some photos of them on the website.


Recommended reads - Street Child by Berlie Doherty

In school, we are reading this book.  It is great!  It has clear links to Victorian times and Dr Barnardo.  

One of the info sheets has a link to a great video about Thomas Barnardo... and the planning document has a helpful planning content grid as well as a plan for you to use before you write!
