One of the main topics that our new Class 3J will be researching and learning about in the school term is that of Victorian England. We have been preparing for this by learning more about the period and the type of characters that lived during Victorian times. Each pupil took it in turn to read out a character description on the class whiteboard. We then matched this up with some of the items that we thought this particular type of character might be associated with.
A large part of this project will be to compare the lifestyles of Victorian children living in London with that of our own. We passed around a chalk and slate board to all of the Class 3J pupils so that they could experience teaching conditions in a Victorian classroom. We will continue with this work in September, building upon the fine start that has already been made.
