    I have not written on this forum before so I don't quite know how it works but I was after any advice for introducing the Victorians to my Y3/4 class.
    I was thinking of being a victorian teacher for the first day back but I feel that may be a little bit too much following the Christmas break...anyone got any other ideas?

    <u>Any</u> ideas would be appreciated!

    Thanks,

    Chris

    We have Victorians in Yr 2 and Yr 6 so that they can build on their knowledge.

    Our Victorian play, "The Workhouse Boy", is a great way to introduce the topic in a fun, educational and inspirational way!
    It's 60 minutes long and is interactive - we take time to talk with the children about the characters they are meeting to give them a chance to discuss/evaluate the story so far.
    We can also follow this up with a 60 minute drama workshop for the children who have watched the play. Really gets them excited about the topic.
    Have a look at www.hobgoblintheatrecompany.co.uk for more details and testimonial.
    Regards
    Dan
