The Year 2 children took part in a Victorian Learning Journey. This was an opportunity for the children to share what they had learnt in the topic ‘Victorian Times’ with their parents and other students in the school.
There were 6 groups, Victorian schools, Victorian costumes, Victorian toys, Victorian workhouses, chimney sweeps and stream trains. Each group researched their particular focus using books and the Internet. They collected facts and information, created a display by copying and pasting pictures from Google images and pasted them into Word, then printed them in black and white. They practised saving, updating and opening documents saved in the Year 2 folder on the server. They decided on what activity they wanted their audience to take part in and the children proved to be very creative with the chimney sweep group asking the parents to scoop out coal made from crumpled up black paper, from a chimney made from boxes, using fishing nets. The Victorian workhouse group gave the parents a quiz and many house points were given for correct answers.
The children demonstrated true resilience, originality and responsibility as what they achieved was all their own creation.
They made us, and the parents incredibly proud!
