Year 5 Victorian Day
On Wednesday 11th December, Year 5 children had a busy day in bringing what they have learnt in their topic of ‘The Victorians – Ye Olden Days’ to life!
The children arrived at school dressed up as a Victorian child. During the morning they re-enacted what it would have been like if they had gone to school in the Victorians times. All the children had to follow classroom rules such as not speaking unless you are spoken to and stand when a teacher walked into the room.
Throughout the morning the children did some poetry reciting, writing and arithmetic using chalk and slates, chanting times tables and they made gruel! In these lessons only the best was good enough!
In the afternoon the children walked down to our local care home to entertain the residents with some beautiful singing.
All the children enjoyed the experience of the day!
