EXPLORING EVERYDAY LIFE OF THE VICTORIANS
Role Play. Handling of artefacts and practical ‘hands on’.
4 WORKSHOPS to choose from for KS1 and KS2
School room: KS 1/2: Role play. Experiencing victorian style education. I turn the classroom into a victorian style school with slates, tables chanting and songs. With some Victorian games, clapping rhymes or hopscotch for “play time”.
Workhouse Experience: KS2 : Role play. Looking at the poorest of the poor, have ‘named’ children to identify with, do ‘work’ and play within the strict workhouse regime.
Washday : KS1 : Really practical session with tin bath, washing dolly and other household artefacts : learning to swish soap in the water, to squeeze, wring and fold. Understanding what hard work it all was.
Toys and games: KS1/2: songs, rhymes and stories : Exploring together traditional games, songs, ring games and rhymes.
