Lesson 5

1.30-2.30

History: To know about the first train lines to be built in Britain.

 

The steam train placed a steam engine on a carriage, which meant it could power its own forward movement. This was called a ‘locomotive’.

 

This is a clip from Dan Snow’s documentary about the birth of the British railway: https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p0157k9c

 

The following clip is about their effect on Britain:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p0151t8r

 

The first fully functioning passenger steam train was built by George Stephenson between Liverpool and Manchester and opened in 1830. It was called the Rocket. Train lines rapidly spread across Britain, transforming British life and making easy travel possible for the first time. Read extract from Fanny Kemble’s memoirs about her first journey by train, and the account of William Husskison MP’s death (see document).

 

Independent Task: Answer the following Key Questions

 

How did a steam train work?

Where was the first passenger steam train built?

Who designed the first passenger steam train?

How did people react to the arrival of the train?

 

Compose your own account imagining you have travelled on the journey of the Liverpool to Manchester railway.

 LO: To make inferences using details stated or implied.

  • Making links
  • Point
  • Evidence

 

My turn:
1. How did Bill feel about what he had just done? Find evidence to support your answer.

Bill felt troubled by what he had done. I think this because in the text it says that his sanity seemed to deteriorate by the hour as if he were haunted by what he had done. This tells me that he was worried and panicked by his actions.

2. Why do you think Charley went against Bill and Fagin and told the police about what he had done?

Charley told the police because he finally saw Bill and Fagin for what they were – cruel and dangerous. I know this because in the text it says that after witnessing what had happened to Dodger and then seeing Nancy’s corpse, had broken any bond of loyalty that Charley felt to Bill and Fagin. This tells me that he felt a sense of guilt and responsibility for what had happened to them. He knew that Bill and Fagin were dangerous men and would stop at nothing to get what they want.

 

Your turn:

  1. Why did Monks want to remove all traces of Oliver’s identity? Find evidence from the text to support your answer.
  2. How did Oliver feel during his journey back to his hometown? Find evidence from the text to support your answer.
  3. Why do you think Mr Brownslow went through so much effort to find out the truth? Find evidence from the text to support your answer.
  4. What sort of person is Monks? How would you describe him? Find evidence from the text to support your answer.

Lesson 5

1.30-2.30

History: To begin to understand the different inventions created during the Industrial Revolution

 

The Industrial Revolution describes the transition from a society based on hand manufacturing and human or animal power, to a society based on machinery. It was characterised by the use of steam powered engines, the spread of factories and machines, mass produced goods and mechanised transport. The Industrial Revolution began in Britain around 1760, but really took off around the 1840s.

 

Independent task: Look at a pre-industrial scene, and a post -industrial scene, of the same location (see document). List as many things that you can think of which did not exist before the industrial revolution.

 

Have a look at the inventions that were created during the industrial revolution: (in the word document on page 1). Order the inventions by considering the date for each of them.

Check your answers (on Page 2). Create a timeline in your books.

 

We have learned about the inventions related to transport. We will be looking at some of the inventions related to manufacturing in more detail in the next few lessons.

Science: L.O: To understand what insulators and conductors are

 

In previous science lessons, you have learned: the different symbols used in circuits, components needed to make a basic circuit work, and how voltage can affect the brightness of a bulb.

 

In this science lesson, you will learn what an electrical conductor and an electrical insulator are. You will conduct an investigation to see which materials are insulators and which are conductors. Finally, you will draw conclusions about the best material to make certain objects from, based on what we have learnt. You will need a piece of paper, a pencil and a ruler.
