We started to practise the moment we got our scripts. Some of us were great at memorising our lines, the week passed very quickly and Wednesday came very fast, we squeezed in one last practice before the assembly. Then it came… our moment to shine…had all the practicing paid off?? …YES!! It had. We gave such a wonderful performance and everyone had learnt their lines well. We displayed such confidence and received a positive reaction from the audience. Our head teacher, Mrs Meehan was very impressed with our assembly and congratulated us all. We all felt very proud of that.
We presented our assembly to show people how different our lives are compared to the Victorian Children. Our audience learnt that the poor had to do horrible jobs and ate poor food, whereas the rich got to have whatever they wanted and did not care about the poor.
Our audience also learned that if you were naughty in a Victorian Classroom there were extreme consequences. If you said the wrong answer you would have to wear the DUNCES cap, and also if you talked in class you would wear a log on your back! There were lots of other severe punishments if you did something wrong in a Victorian Classroom. We're very glad we don't live in Victorian England!
It was great to share with everyone what we have been learning in Humanities and how interesting History can be.
