The Victorians

 

Our Topic is the Victorians. Children have had the opportunity to explore Victorian Artefacts. They are comparing between objects used in the past and objects used today.

 

The children experienced a day in the life of a Victorian classroom. They sat in rows of twos and sat in silence. They had the chance to write with a slate. They really enjoyed this!

Can you name these Victorian objects? How were they used?

Our Seasons T-shirts!

In our DT lessons, children have designed, made and evaluated their own seasons t-shirt. They used fabric paints and fabric colouring pens. They also used the technique they had learned of gluing fabric pieces onto their t-shirt.

Look at our fantastic designs! Can you work out which season we have created?

World Book Day!

Thank you for all of the effort you made with the costumes of children's book characters. They all looked great and had a fantastic day!

Children tasted the following fruit:

1. Banana

2. Apple

3. Pineapple

4. Strawberry

5. Orange

They then chose three to make their fruit kebab.
