The Victorian era has continued to provide a range of eye-opening learning opportunities, with Year 6 stepping into the shoes of Victorian children, and getting to grips with what life was like for the rich and poor in Victorian society. Having spent time exploring the wonders of a Victorian schoolroom, they went on to discover the various toys and games that would have been played at that time. Children at home and school got creative, making some of these for themselves and trying them out: the ball and cup; jack-in-a-box; hoop and stick, thaumatrope, and hopscotch were among their favourites.
There was a real sense of unity last week when the class performed the narrative poem ‘Wreck of the Hesperus’ via our Google Meet platform, with individuals each taking a stanza and creating an artistic representation to go alongside their performance. We may not all be in one place, but we’re never apart!
Studying the artwork of William Morris was a focus for this week’s art lesson, with children replicating his unique designs on paper. For homework, they will be asked to take inspiration from their natural surroundings in order to produce their own flora and fauna design, which will be reproduced as a tile print next week.
