Victorian Classroom Trip

This week we went back in time to 1893. We became scholars at the Victorian classroom for the day. First we met  Miss Sharp or Ma’am. She was our teacher for the day. Victorian teachers couldn’t be married and they only earned about £40 a year!

We quickly realised that girls were treated very differently to boys in Victorian schools. Boys and girls were taught separately and were not allowed to see each other at school!

 Next we dressed up as Victorian scholars and took a role of a girl or boy scholar for the day. Two children were monitors to help Ma’am. Lottie Innocent practised ‘deportment’. This was learning how to walk and hold yourself correctly. The girls had to curtsey to Miss Sharp and the boys had to take off their caps.

After this, we had a lesson… Victorian style! The boys got the best places and sat separately to the girls. The girls practised needlework and the boys practised handwriting.

Some children had special roles to play like having dirty hands!

Being late, telling tales and gossiping!

And finally… getting the CANE!!!

KS2 French day 16th June 2017

Breakfast club had a French theme and the lunch menu was French themed!

All of the children in KS2 had the opportunity to choose from three activities across the whole day. These activities covered the whole curriculum and linked to France.

The children also had the opportunity to try some food that originated in France

 

 

Class comments

‘I liked learning more French. I learnt the numbers to twenty with Mrs Carnall.’

Josh White

‘I love DT because we experimented with different material. It was good having a choice so we didn’t have to do activities we didn’t want to do. We also had a chance to try different French food!’

Jamie-Leigh Plant.

‘French day was different to a normal school day because we had lots of different activities. My favourite was drama because we acted out a story we have already read in our French lessons.’

Aia Ali.

‘I liked French day because I saw my friends and other children from other classes.’

Carly Harrison.
