Victorian times came to our Year 6 children. The children were transported back to times of Chimney sweeps, maids, hard graft and no Wi-Fi!!! The children were taught lessons as they would have back in the day, with the children and teachers using chalk and slate. The boys were taught lessons including dictation, learning about how Potatoes were in short supply and Technical drawing. With the girls separated from the boys they were off to learn about dress making, cleaning and cooking, with Rock Cakes being baked.
The children brought the day to a close by presenting ‘The day in the life of a Victorian’ to the Middle School children. The Year 6 children kept in character as they answered questions about their life in Victorian Times, the children ended their presentation by singing ‘Food, Glorious Food.
