Class 2 have been learning all about the Victorians this half term. In English we have been exploring Oliver Twist and A Christmas Carol. We have produced some super writing linked to these stories. In Maths we have been learning about money and we have a Victorian toy shop in our classroom to help with our learning. We have learnt all about Queen Victoria and her family. We painted some silhouette portraits of her using thin and thick paintbrushes. To help us gain more knowledge and understanding about the Victorians we visited Shibden Hall and took part in a workshop called Dollies and Dusters. We had to dress up as servants and help Mr Boot and Bessie to do all the jobs in the house. We even did washing with a dolly and mangle! We have also learnt all about schools in Victorian times and how they are very different to our schools today. We decided that we wouldn't like to go to a school in Victorian times!
