Y6 Victorian Day

As part of their history project, Year 6 pupils were transported to Victorian Britain on Wednesday to experience what life was really like as a Victorian child.

The pupils were introduced to Miss Daisy, a Victorian teacher, as she took over the school for a whole morning. The pupils learnt the 3 R’s and the strict punishments given for unruly behaviour. They examined real Victorian artefacts and compared them to our modern equivalents. They even played some classic Victorian children’s games.

The pupils thoroughly enjoyed the experience and gained a huge amount of empathy for life as a Victorian which will now be used the enthuse and inform their writing.
