"Are you listening, boy? What is twenty-seven plus forty-five? Come on - faster now, we haven't got all day!"

 

Find out about super-strict schools by travelling back in time to a Victorian classroom. Make sure you're on your best behaviour though, as punishments are unquestionably terrible!

 

Discover a time when great minds thought new thoughts and ingenious inventors created so many things we take for granted today: the electric light bulb, the telephone and even the modern flushing toilet!  
You might even get to invent things yourself in the Victorian Dragon's Den...

 

We will research a time when Victoria was Queen and Albert was Prince Consort - when some people lived in slums while others prospered.

We have all gone back in time to a Victorian classroom. All children soon got in to character and their wonderful costumes made it more realistic. They have learnt how repetitive and strict the classroom was. A great morning was had by all. 

Our topic is near the end. We have worked so hard and learnt lots about the Victorian Era. We have learnt about the awful working conditions of children in factories, down mines or even sweeping chimneys. We have also made our own slums from a variety of materials.

We have also researched significant figures such as Florence Nightingale, Robert Peel and Joseph Lister.

 

This week we have been on another journey back in time to a Victorian Christmas at Newstead Abbey. All of the children got in role with costume and brought a suitable Victorian Lunch. Thank you for all the help to make this trip a success. 

 

Also so we were able to visit OIEA to complete a science electricity experiment with oranges and lemons.
