Children of Winter by Berlie Doherty – teaching guide

Cornerstones Love to Read teaching guide for Children of Winter*, packed with ideas for classroom activities that encourage children to talk about their reading.

Children of Winter is a haunting time-slip story sensitively dramatising the personal and social effects of the Great Plague of 1665-1666. Although fictional, the story is inspired by the true story of the village of Eyam in Derbyshire, which isolated itself during the plague. An easy read though it demands a fair amount of inference. Will appeal to both boys and girls.
