Form 4’s Victorian Christmas

Posted on: December 12th 2014 | Category:

We started off (after a long coach delay!) with silk screen printing of Christmas cards in the style of the first card ever sent. 

After a visit to the shop and lunch we found out about the Victorian Christmas lunch and were all surprised to hear about the eating of swans by the Queen and of peacocks. We learned that a Christmas pudding used to be wrapped in an old sheet and then took eight hours to cook! 

We then sang songs and quoted nursery rhymes still popular today.

Our final activity involved finding out about the history behind the Christmas tree and we then made Christmas bags.  

We all had a very enjoyable day and the students were able to recall and then develop their learning of the period from last half-term.
