This week we will be using a picture to write an explanation text. Look at this picture of a Victorian Parlour, I have hidden 5 things on there that do not fit into that period in time. Can you see what they are? Try and identify them and then write me an explanation as to what Victorians would have used in their time for entertainment, telling the time, communication and hair styling. Try and write a short paragraph for each, use subheadings to introduce each item.

I have also included some V.E Day reading comprehension texts for you to have a go at, in celebration of the 75th anniversary of the end of WW2.
