'How Vile were the Victorians?'

 

This term we are learning about the Victorians who lived during the reign of Queen Victoria. Our focus includes: the chronology of Victorian Britain; life as a child during this time; how schooling differed to today; the British Empire; Victorian London and famous Victorians such as Charles Dickens and Alexander Graham Bell. Our artwork will be inspired by William Morris and his work in the textiles industry and in Design and Technology we will be creating bridges influenced by Brunel. 

 

In English, we are using several texts/visual stimuli to inspire the children's writing and will initially be starting with Street Child by Berlie Doherty where the children will write a diary entry and a book review. As we move into the second half of the term, the children will use The Snow Queen by Hans Christian Anderson to inspire narrative writing.

 

 In Maths, we are continuing our learning by using Maths No Problem. We will start with number and place value and move into fractions, decimals and measurement. 

 

I look forward to a fantastic term with the new Jaguars class,

Great Cressingham 17/10/17

 

We had a fantastic time at Great Cressingham Victorian School this week where we learnt about school life in the Victorian times by taking on the role of a poor Victorian child.

 

When we arrived at the school, the Ma'am (Mrs North) greeted us by ringing the school bell and ordered us to line up (in two lines for boys and girls) in height order. Before entering the school, the boys dothed their caps and the girls curtsied. The Ma'am showed us what school was like in 1897 by teaching us the three R's (Reading, Writing and Arithmetic), singing and outdoor games including Whip and Top (which was similar to a spinning top) and Hoop and Stick (which involved keeping a hoop rolling for as long as possible).

 

By lunchtime, we had worked up an appetite and feasted on a true Victorian lunch of bread, cheese, cake, fruit and water. 

 

In the afternoon, we were split into boys and girls (just like in the Victorian times) and the girls learnt needlework and the boys did observational drawings of real-life objects. At the end of the day, we had the chance to use dip pens and ink to practise our best handwriting. It was more difficult than we first thought and there were a few ink disasters!

 

Overall, it was a fantastic day and we learnt that school life was very different in 1897 to what it is today. 

Ready, Steady... Bake! Miss Lemin challenged us to a 'Technical Bake' today where we had to follow a limited recipe to make cakes. The results were interesting!

Alice brought Cynthia the snake in to see us today! 13/10/17.
