Fawbert & Barnard's Primary School

Learning for Life

Years 1 & 2 Victorian Workshop

Year 1 and 2 visited the Braintree museum to take part in a Victorian workshop.

This visit enabled them to put their learning of this subject into practice.   The children took part in various activities including:

  • A Classroom roleplay – an authentic lesson from a Victorian school teacher, featuring writing on slates, times-tables and an inspection for clean fingernails and shoes!
  • An artefacts workshop – a hands-on session featuring original Victorian objects
  • Gallery Activities – exploring the museum displays with the help of a themed worksheet

Although some children found the classroom very strict, an enjoyable time was had by all.
