Autumn Term - The Victorians


We have introduced the children to our Victorian topic and began with some tasting of gruel. Most children didn't like this but some thought it was delicious!


Our trip this term was to Southwell Workhouse. Children got dressed up in traditional Victorian clothes and toured the Workhouse. They even got to take part in a Victorian school lesson. Thankfully they were all well behaved and didn't receive any Victorian punishments.

Spring Term - Vikings 


We enjoyed a visit from Erik the Viking, who came in to school to tell us more about how the Vikings lived.
