This term Dosbarth 2 have been learning about the Victorians and asked to have a Victorian classroom experience. Miss McIntosh organised a live virtual session with Reading Museum to help the children learn all about what life was like as a Victorian child – in school at work and the toys they played with.
Developing skills across the curriculum:
The Victorian Topic provided lots of exciting and purposeful opportunities for the children to develop their reading and writing skills. They discussed what makes a good portrait, created success criteria and used them create their own portraits of Queen Victoria. The children also followed instructions to make their own Penny Black stamps.
All set for Victorian School
It was lovely to see the children come in to school in traditional Victoria dress, ready for an exciting day!

A fantastic day of exciting learning.
Creative learning for Curriculum for Wales
The Victorian topic has provided a wonderful opportunity for the children to learn in creative and engaging ways. They have had the opportunity to develop a range of skills, and the virtual museum visit was a fantastic way engage and capture the children’s imagination and their excitement for learning.
