Victorian Life and Learning

This term we are venturing back to the Victorian Era in our learning. In our writing we have explored the story of Shadow Play and learnt how family was not always what it seemed in Victorian times. We learnt about how the Industrial Revolution brought great riches for some but also hardship for other in the loss of their craft. In Computing we celebrated the work of Charles Babbage and Ada Lovelace in designing the first computers and writing the first computer programs - all made from brass and wood and running on hand cranked power. 

 

In the second half-term we are continuing our Victorian learning in History and English. We studied the 1845 poem The Raven by Edgar Allan Poe, looking at its Gothic themes and how this style of writing influences modern classics such as Dracula and Frankenstein.  We will be concluding our learning with the very enjoyable trip to Gressenhall Farm and Workhouse to see how Victorians lived and hopefully solve a mystery at the same time.
