Learning and caring together, building a firm foundation for the future

Going Back in Time!

We had an interesting day this term when we went back in time to the Victorian period. It was great to see the children enthusiastic and dressed up in their fantastic Victorian attire.

We started our day by paying our penny for our school education, choosing our Victorian name and having a fingernail inspection. We also learnt rhymes and important songs such as the National Anthem.

 

We learnt that the boys and girls were not allowed to sit together or play together.

  

 

It was also very strange to not have the lights on all day, as of course these use electricity, which was not around during Victorian times. Instead we had to work by candle light!

 

During the day we were fortunate enough to have a visit from the Victoria and Albert museum who told us about toys and entertainment during Victorian times. We learnt that instead of going to the cinema and watching a film, they would go to watch a shadow puppet theatre. Luckily, we were able to make characters from traditional stories and use a shadow theatre to tell a story. This was a huge success!
