Class One visited the Radstock Museum. We were transformed into Victorian Children with waistcoats and pinafores with new Victorian names, such as Fred, Harry, Lily and Ruby.
Then, we heard the bell ring, gave our penny to the teacher and started our lessons on Reading, Writing and Arithmetic.
We discovered that in Victorian times, the children sat in rows at wooden desks. We used chalk and slate to write our letters and sums. If you were naughty, the teacher would use the cane on your hands, or you would have to wear the dunce's hat and stand in the corner.
After, we split into groups and visited the COOP, Blacksmiths and the miner's cottage with laundry room and privy (toilet).
What an amazing trip!
Class one discovered an alien had landed in the school woods. We followed the clues to find him. How are we going to get the alien home?

To introduce our new science topic, Plant Life, Class one have been busy growing seeds in our outdoor area. We have planted:
We have been monitoring them and seeing the process of how plants become vegetables and fruits. Also, Ivy generously gave us a tomato plant for us to grow too.
Have a look and see how well they are doing.
Class one have begun looking and discussing art which shows street views, people and objects.
What were the similarities and differences? Then, we created our own versions of each piece.
