If we can dream it ... we can do it!


The objectives for today are:

I know what caused the Oaks disaster.

To understand the sequence of events in the Oaks mining disaster.


Look at the preliminary worksheet pic – what do the children think has happened?

Look at the timeline of events and discuss. Talk about how it was a whole year before it was safe to start clearing the mine shaft and find all the people who had died. Answer the questions in the form of a paragraph in your book remembering your capital letters, full stops, finger spcaes and phonics. Make sure you copy the words correctly from the text.
