Now Press Play!
This experience really allowed the children in year 5 to become immersed in their Topic and Literacy lessons. They listened to an interactive story and acted it out as the main character. We explored as well as life in a Victorian workhouse. We used our new knowledge to write persuasive letters to Queen Victoria asking her to ban these acts. Overall, the children really valued the experience and it gave them the opportunity to really feel what it was like in a different era.
