Year 6 Victorian Quest Day

For our Quest Day this term, year 6 wanted to experience what it may have been like for a Victorian child at school.

They came in dressed up in Victorian costume. First, they chose a traditional Victorian name to be called for the day. In outdoor learning, they had their hands inspected and took part in a drill session. In class, they experienced a short Victorian lesson reciting spellings, time stables, a diction exercise, naming countries of the British Empire, reciting the Lord’s Prayer and singing the National Anthem. They continued sewing their samplers and in the afternoon, they had a variety of activities to choose from including writing (right handed only) in copy books or on slates with chalk or making a Victorian toy: a jumping jack.

We had a great day.
