In Autumn 2, we have been studying 'The Victorians', we have looked at different aspects of Victorian life using 'Street Child' as a platform to explore what life was like in the workhouses and on the streets. We focused especially on child labour and the laws that came into effect during the Victorian era. Unfortunately, Year 5 were unable to visit the Victorian School, so the Victorian school came to them! They dressed up as Victorians and practiced Victorian school rules and perfected their 'Copperplate' style handwriting to prepare them for their roles. We then celebrated a Victorian Christmas with garlanding as well as traditional carols, christmas cards and crackers.
