Titanic Stories.

As part of our topic about the Titanic, we have researched the journey of a passenger from the Titanic.  It was very interesting to see whether they survived or died, however we also found it very sad.  We then created stories about our passengers on board the Titanic.  Can you share some of your brilliant stories Year 5?

Victorian school trip

Our Victorian school trip we went on was really cool. The best part was when we was in the Victorian class room. After that our group went and looked round the museum. When we finished in the museum we went and washed some clothes how the Victorians did.

The Industrial museum

The best bit about going to the Industrial museum was the school room. I was a school room monitor so I had to hand out everything I was given. There was a row of girls then boys and girls then boys. There was a door for the boys and a door for the girls. I did some handwriting we used ink to write with. I did maths on some slate, we did adding and subtracting. I had to draw a brick for the art.

Why I enjoyed the industrial museum.

My favourite parts of the industrial museum were when we did the cleaning with the old soaps.We used a poseur to clean the clothes and a mangle to squeeze out all of the water.We also placed them on a range (fireplace).We also dyed the Collars a blue colour to help them stay clean longer.

We also experienced what the schools were like in the Victorian times it was strict.We wrote with ink pens and chalk on a slate board it was fun.We used the ink pens for writing letters and the chalk board for maths.In maths we also did column addition it was easy.In literacy we wrote A,B,C in Victorian style it looked very fancy

I didn’t want to go it was so much fun!
