Stepping back into Victorian Times

Year 6 enjoyed a morning at Reveley Lodge last week, re-enacting life as Victorians.

The pupils were very well looked after by the staff at the grade II listed house, who showed them some amazing historical artefacts and told them fascinating stories of life in Victorian times. There was plenty of hands-on experience for our pupils during the trip too, as they carried out the roles of Victorian laundry maids and Victorian schoolchildren.  After all their hard work re-enacting life as Victorians they were treated to an authentic Victorian afternoon tea, which they all very much enjoyed.

The trip brought to life the work on Victorian times Year 6 have been doing in the classroom and it was great to hear how much they enjoyed their visit and all the interesting things they learnt.
