Y5's Visit to Sudbury Hall.
On Monday 11th November, the Y5 children visited The Museum of Childhood at Sudbury Hall. Y5 are learning about the differences between the lives of rich and poor children in Victorian times. The children experienced a Victorian schoolroom and were taught by a very strict teacher ! There was also an opportunity for any brave children to climb a ‘real ‘chimney. It was very small and dark and really gave the children an authentic experience. The museum contained some extraordinary toys from the Victorian era. A particular favourite was a clockwork clown, which could draw real pictures. There were also lots of opportunities for playing with replica toys from the Victorian era. The visit also linked with our forces topic in Science. The children participated in a workshop called ‘ How does it work ?’. Children learnt about how different forces acted upon the toys.
