We had such a fun and interesting day on Thursday, holding our very own version of the Great Exhibition in Lilac Class. The children looked brilliant in their Victorian outfits; we even had a couple of Sherlock Holmes’ thrown into the mix. At home, it’s clear the children have been working so incredibly hard to make their very own models of inventions that were created in the Victorian era. We had everything, from working lightbulbs to zoetropes, wireless energy to Christmas crackers! The children loved hearing about and looking at others’ models. As well as this, we had a go at making jam tarts using a traditional Victorian recipe and wrote a newspaper report all about a day. After a jam-packed day – pardon the pun – we finished off the day eating our baked goods and explored Wonderland with Alice. What a fantastic day had by all!
