Year 2 have been learning about the Victorians this half term. We have really enjoyed learning about Queen Victoria, her husband Prince Albert, her 9 children and the family dog Dash.
In English, we have read ‘The Victorian Adventure’ and ‘The Chimney Sweep’. We found out that children as young as 5 had to go work in the Victorian times. They worked in the mines, up the chimneys and in workhouses.
In History, we have looked at Queen Victoria’s timeline and compared her to Queen Elizabeth. We then researched about ‘The Great Exhibition’. We then studied Florence Nightingale and all the good things she did for nurses and hospitals.
In art, we researched the famous artist William Morris. We found out that he was a famous wallpaper designer. We then designed our own wallpaper, all of the designs were fantastic!
We have really enjoyed learning about the Victorians and we can’t wait for our Victorian trip in Autumn 2.
The first part of this video shows you how to log into your Google Classroom. Mrs Haw demonstrates with a Year 6 classroom so ensure you are using the class code given by your own teacher. You won't find the work on the video in every classroom as this was set for Year 6, so once you're logged in you can see what we have set for you in our class. Keep your eyes peeled for our welcome video too!
