Victorian Day

Year 5 thoroughly enjoyed Victorian Day on Monday, the children had a fantastic morning researching Victorian toys, identifying some artifacts from the Victorian era and participating in a typical Victorian school morning - even using chalk to write with. 

In the afternoon, the pupils participated in a workshop all about the jobs that children had in the Victorian times - it was shocking how badly they were treated! The workshop ended with an excellent performance consisting of mini role plays the children had been involved in. This gave them a real insight in to what life was like for children in Victorian times and made them realise just how lucky they are to go to school!
