Year 6 “Bah..humbug!”

Year 6 have been exploring Scrooge as a character alongside crime in the Victorian era motivated by desperate poverty. We have discussed the pickpocketing that occurred and linked it with Fagin’s gang in Dickens’ Oliver Twist.  The children have written letters to Scrooge encouraging him to change his ways and generously donate money to charity. Others wrote more damning letters criticising Scrooge for his mean and miserly behaviour. We look forward to watching the Jim Carey animated film A Christmas Carol as an end of term treat!
