In summer 1 Year 5 was investigating the Victorians, and what life was like for Victorian children at school and at home.
We looked at the timeline of this long-lived Monach and drew comparisons between Victorian life and our own experiences.
We were also lucky enough to have been loaned a victorian artefact box from The Southampton Sea City Museum. We explored victorian life through handling and observing real artefacts. The children used their inference skills to find out what they were used for and what each artefact was.
This may be a good place to look to explore more – http://www.bbc.co.uk/schools/primaryhistory/victorian_britain/
In Science we explored the Solar System and visited Winchester Science Centre to further investigate the workings of our solar system and its place in the Galaxy.
