Year 6 - Mr Lancashire

Our upcoming trip to Newstead Abbey is Tuesday the 11th of December - children will need to dress in their Victorian outfits and bring a 'themed' lunch (no plastic packets or bottles - we want to try to be authentic).

Our new topic - Revolution - focuses on the history of Victorian Britain.

 

"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.
