Victorian School Days at
Christ Church C of E
A local history unit, based on the history of our school, along with the geography of our school and the surrounding area.
On Wednesday 26th June, Year 3 went back in time to the age of the Victorians. Our classroom became a Victorian school room where children sat in rows of boys and girls, worked on skates using chalk and participated in a Victorian drill on the playground. The three Rs were taught of Reading, Writing and Arithmetic.
We had a magical experience this week of transporting to the world of Harry Potter and playing Quidditch! Year 3 were split into the four house teams: Gryffindor, Slytherin, Hufflepuff and Ravenclaw to play against each other (on broomsticks!) as Keepers, Seekers, Beaters and Chasers! Lots of amazing props were used such as multi coloured wigs and headbands! A fantastic fun filled opportunity for the class!
The Dogs Trust charity visited Christ Church so we could learn about handling dogs and how the charity look after homeless dogs.
They look after 15,000 dogs every year!
