Y5 Industrial Museum Trip

The Year 5 children enjoyed a fascinating trip to Bradford Industrial Museum today. To fit with Topic learning, they all experienced a session in a Victorian Schoolroom where they were taught the 3 ‘R’s, sang, recited poetry and learnt facts about an orange.
It was great to see the children engage with their learning so well, not least due to the wonderful costumes they came in! We hope that you remember this experience for a long time to come.

What was it like to be a Viking trader?

   
    
 
Why were the Vikings disadvantaged?

What skills does a successful trader need to possess?

Victorian School

The Year 5 children have all travelled back in time this week to experience life in an authentic Victorian schoolroom.
Our trip to the Bradford Industrial Museum gave everyone the chance to use chalk slates, sit in rows on benches, use ink dip pens and recite poetry, songs and times tables.
We were really pleased that the children used their prior learning from their topic work this year to impress the School Master and that they followed the strict rules of the Victorian classroom so wonderfully.
Everyone had a special Victorian name for the day and dressed up brilliantly in Victorian clothing!

Viking Trading Game



4B have been playing a game to learn about Viking trading. 

Working for either the Viking or Anglo-Saxon civilisations they produced, negotiated and traded goods with each other. 

They learnt about what the Vikings traded, how they did it and how trading from Scandinavia wasn’t always easy. 

I wonder if anyone from 4B can give us some more information about what is was like to be a Viking trader?

Do you know who Anne Boleyn was?
How was she related to Henry viii?

Who can find out how Elizabeth 1 was related to Henry viii?
